Rooms for Life Village Project
Sat-Ed is committed to bringing education and internet access to those disenfranchised by the digital divide. Our Room for Life addresses these needs in Rooms for Life in remote villages all over Asia. Owned and operated by a computer professional, these centres of learning are a place for everyone in the village to pursue life-long learning. Using the Sat-Ed proprietary Digital Library and delivered using the newest iPSTAR technology, it is full of educational content for all ages. In addition, the computer professional is tasked with fixing and maintaining existing computers in the surrounding village schools and government offices. That effectively multiplies the effectiveness of the computers already existing in the area, many of which are sitting unused or broken on shelves collecting dust. The computer professional also holds classes on how to use a computer for beginners and uses the IPTV to help people adapt to using a PC. All of these things are available very affordably to any villager who wishes to increase their knowledge. They can even assist in setting up websites to market OTOP products or other goods and services. Add in digital cinema on demand and you have a place for the whole village to congregate and grow together.System Overview
The Room for Life is delivered from Bangkok using iPSTAR satellite. The content is delivered to the Sat-Ed Digital library. The content is then stored on the digital library and accessed at our Rooms for life by computer workstation or via IPTV. Computer users will find the quality of the content unlike anything they have used before and the rich, full look to it will make studying easier and less time-consuming. If someone is computer-illiterate, they can use the IPTV. By using a remote control device to page between videos, it will appear to the normal user as if they are watching TV but they are viewing educational content. Room For Life at Sakonakon.
