 •Digital Libraries
      for Schools




          SAT-ED
                What we Do
 Bring access to digital content for education
  in rural and remote areas
 Sat-Ed Digital Library for Schools
   • Launched Friday 2nd November 2007
   – 10 schools,
   – 9 in “Red Zones” Southern Thailand
 Sat-Ed Learning Cafe's
   • Launched Songkran April 2007
      - 2 Sites – 500 planned
 First IPTV Video on Demand in rural and
  regional schools
 Ghana, South Africa, Vietnam and Cambodia
              E-Learning fails - why
 Access to Broadband Infrastructure
  – Costly and prone to failure in remote areas –
    we love iPSTAR
        $80 a site – sustainable
        $800 a site - unsustainable
 The nature of the Internet - Never enough!
  – Bottlenecks every where –
      Leaving the school
      Across the network – schools run 8 – 4 HOT
      At the servers of education web sites
  – you wouldn't hire a teacher who stopped . . . start . .
    stop . . .
  – but we accept that from e-learning
 Sat-Ed has developed a technical
  solution that allows Universal
  Access to Digital Content by PC's
  and TV's, called the

  Sat-Ed Digital Library
        Sat-Ed Digital Library Concept
   The Digital Library
    • Content repository ON SITE
    • A site exactly like a normal library, except
      all content is digital - AVAILABLE
    • Like a normal library, INSTANT access to
      content regardless of Internet connection
    • A school with minimal Internet access can
      have ultra high speed access to content
   Digital Library Management Control
    System
    • Pushing, pulling, and security of content
    • The Librarian, removes old content,
    • Sends new content to all sites
   Sat-Ed – Not just technology
 Content is King
   – Over 2000 hours of VoD content for
     Thai schools
   – Thai content in Thai
   – VoD in Classrooms is radically
     changing how lessons are conducted
   – Caching important web sites locally
 There is no ONE solution, TV's and PC's
  both will play important rolls in the
  future to access digital content, as will
  other devices
   The power of
 Video on Demand
 Teachers are scared
  technology will replace
  them. The Sat-Ed Digital
  Library makes them
  BETTER teachers
 The graph shows how VOD
  – 4 x 1 minute sessions in
  a class, greatly improved
  the students ability to
  understand and use maths
 Video used as a Teachers
  tool in the USA, showed
  remarkable improvement in
  students ability and
  DESIRE to learn.

 DOES IT WORK?
  Introducing a new dynamic in
teaching – students and teachers
working together rather than 1 way
          communication
