Motorola develops Canopy for village schools in India

Motorola has developed a unique wireless broadband solution called `Canopy'. The 'Canopy' will be used to connect rural India to its urban counterpart through e-Education, e-Governance and e-Health.


This project will be envisaged by the Motorola Foundation, an NGO run by mobile phone major Motorola. It will soon introduce virtual classroom at the very same village school, with a teacher from one of the best city schools teaching the students in the hinterland. What this means is that a teacher can simultaneously teach students across five different schools, a doctor can easily reach out to patients in several villages and a farmer can find out the latest price that his produce commands without having to travel miles. Subhendu Mohanty, Senior Director, Motorola, says the company will provide the technical expertise, while the foundation will finance the project. For its pilot e-Education project, Motorola has selected four schools run by the NGO Deepalaya in Delhi.
