Yahoo India is planning to collaborate with schools for providing them Internet education. With this collaboration, Yahoo aspires to network with schools with basic computer laboratories till class 8th.
The module would cover various aspects of internet, including email, search, accessing mobile internet and tips on internet safety to students. However, programme is yet to be finalized.
Yahoo also runs a similar programme, ‘Learn with Yahoo’, in collaboration with different cyber cafes across the country through which a person can sit for a 60-minute learning module on various aspects of the Internet. Currently, the programme covers 2,500 cyber cafes across 50 cities in 15 states. About 60 per cent of these cafes are located in small towns. Yahoo started this programme in November 2010 and have already handed over 400,000 certificates.
