NIIT's School Learning Solutions has partnered with US-based NComputing Inc to offer affordable computer education in schools across India.
As a part of the agreement NIIT, which offers computer and computer-aided education to 1.5 million students in over 5,000 schools, would bring its expertise and reach in schools while NComputing would offer its technology. Under the NComputing solution, each user would be connected to the main terminal, so that they can simultaneously work on different applications such as word processing, Internet browsing, e-mail and spreadsheets among others. NComputing access devices and software can allow up to 30 users to access the capability of a single PC. NIIT has already deployed the solution in 20 schools across the country under the 'NIIT School Station' project, and is also in talks with various State Governments to implement the project.
