Has no one else innovated any other solution to the problem addressed herein?
Despite our extensive research, we are yet to encounter anything that is as convenient and efficient as the My sCool Server. Herein are a few key findings that we encountered prior to setting out on our quest for innovation -
- The state of Kerala (Impact study report TAPMI dated 21-07-2010) and Karnataka have attempted various models to achieve the same end goal of imparting education around the Linux ecosystem but with varying degrees of success and with varying but huge cost implications to the exchequer. Here is also a commendable document with a brief comparative study of the two models (Study by IT4Change Bangalore 13-07-2010).
- There are a few organisations who are providing custom Linux distributions and solutions that propagate a vendor lock-in culture whenever you want to add additional or replace end-user systems, hence ours is definitely superior to those as well.
- Our innovation’s goal has also been to present the most cost effective solution till date to achieve the same end-result, yet with an expansive scope without any constraints. No solution provider seems to be providing such a scalable and mass replicable solution.
Hence, herein is a chance for an institution to not only be the front-runner in implementing this most innovative and effective solution but to also set a precedent for the rest to follow, most of whom seem clueless about how to go about the mammoth task of spreading computer literacy and IT-enabled education among the masses.
