Giving Remote Communities Access
to the World’s Knowledge
Education has always been about access to knowledge. It used to come mainly from books and teachers; today this is no longer the case. Technology is revolutionizing the way we learn – from pre-schools to universities. E-learning (aka distance learning) and access to pedagogical content knowledge can potentially level the playing field among students regardless of their socio-economic status or geographical location.
However, in order to enjoy these benefits, schools and students need access to the Internet. This is particularly difficult in developing countries and rural areas where the majority of people still aren’t connected. Satellite communications is the technology that can bring broadband connectivity to every school in every village at an affordable price.
