WHAT WE DO
We design, test and implement creative computer network solutions for remote schools in developing countries by taking advantage of the latest technology. These solutions provide students with a cost-effective and sustainable way to enhance their learning experience through the use of interactive digital contents as well as other computer-based tools and applications. We work closely with the local volunteering organizations to implement and monitor the project for optimal impact
HOW IT WORKS
The key to this endeavor is the use of a single - board computer device. It is a computer about the size of a credit card which can run a majority of applications that an average desktop computer can run but using only thirty times less power. It also costs ten times less. It is a cost-effective solution to improving the education of students.
Although it has a very small footprint it is packed with a lot of features such as built-in wi-fi, bluetooth, 4 USB ports, microSD card slot and a 1.2 GHz CPU backed by 1GB RAM. It can be used as a stand-alone computer with digital content copied in a microSD card or in a client-server network using a file server to broadcast digital content of any form. It can also connect to the internet using a lightweight browser and run desktop business/office applications.
