Why do we need the My sCool Server?

There should be no compromise while imparting education. We believe that imparting computer skills is as important as the fundamental skills of reading and writing. Also, leveraging ICT tools for overall pedagogical delivery has several benefits.

Yet several factors ranging from affordability and complexity of infrastructure, lack of access to relevant content and shortage of adequate trainers are major hurdles. This is despite great intent, policy and efforts of all stakeholders involved – the administrators, the institutes and the teachers. The My sCool Server is a solution for many such problems.

What is the My sCool Server?

The My sCool Server is an offline device to power a wired network of diskless computers, making all of them usable and useful instantly. It simultaneously serves computer labs, several smart classrooms as well as facilitates tablet PC based learning models. All this, while being completely adaptable to almost any pedagogical approach.
