ViCTERS, IT @ School Project Trivandrum

India’s first broadband network on EDUSAT for schools - ViCTERS (Virtual Class Technology on Edusat for Rural Schools) has been inaugurated by H.E. Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, the President of India on 28th July, 2005 in Thiruvananthapuram. The state has already started a non-interactive channel in DTH (Direct-to-Home) to be brought to all its 12,500 schools wherein 50 lakh children stand to benefit.

Characteristics

The Channel provides virtual classrooms in a multi class and studio environment with seamless two-way interaction between the teachers and students in a collaborative framework. It provides seamless, one-to-one, one-to-many connectivity, through the broadcasting network in a multicasting mode of delivery. It seamlessly enables a remote teacher to become a teacher to all the students in a session. Unlike the other video conferencing systems and multimedia tools currently in use for tele-education purposes, this Interactive Universal Tele-education delivery system creates a virtual classroom. It enables the teacher to take the student to a live virtual tour of the subject. This provides a cost effective solution for interactive content delivery. In a comparative basis we can create 250 nodes tele-education system for interactive delivery at a cost of establishing 4 multi-station video conferencing systems.
