Partnership with overseas schools
Our school has a partnership with a school in Tanzania. This is in early stages at the moment, but I have a few ideas on how IT can help them and us.
It's perfectly feasible for them to get broadband Internet in Tanzania at reasonable prices. They can also get computers donated by charities.
With them on the Internet, we could greatly improve the communication between us. I'm thinking of:-
Remote Support (like Citrix GoToAssist Express).
Has anyone else already done something similar? Used the Internet in partnering with an overseas school? Any ideas or suggestions would be most welcome.
Citrix GotoAssist Express
Hi if you need web conferencing or unattended remote access the Citrix have GoToMeeting with integrated VoIP and audio works on Mac's also, and GoToMyPC, same technology as the GoToAssist Express model. Their sales number is 08000 112 120 and ask for Olive ! Or reply with your email address to me and I can pass it on.
No Broadband, Citrix works over 56k dial up !
Well the Citrix products work over broadband and even 56k dial up. I use them in Africa where they have no broadband all the time and they work perfectly!
