It is an initiative aimed at improving access by installing 80 digital hubs across sub-Saharan countries both in East Africa and West Africa. The countries that are going to benefit from this Badiliko campaign are Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Nigeria and Gabon.
Microsoft has been very instrumental in acquiring partners that they later help launch Learning Initiatives in the Partners In Learning Programme.
The service will make use of native Microsoft legacy systems like Microsoft Multipoint server and other Microsoft Based distribution systems to grow popularity of Badiliko. The main aim of Badiliko is professional development of Trainers (Teachers) and the students and by extension the community.
To push adoption and show maximum support for Badiliko, Mrs. Maundu, Head of the Human Resource department at the Teacher’s Service Commission, added that this is mainly an adoption of a set of explicit frameworks for embedding ICT into the current setting of education. “We had and still have a great need to acquire more teachers conversant with the ICT sector as a commission and this is one of the initiatives that will help us achieve this.”, Mrs. Maundu said in an exclusive interview with Juuchini Media.
“We expect 20,000 teachers should be trained by June via a total 15 hubs all over Kenya and over 100 thousand students and learners to be reached by June of this year.” Said Joe Lemaron, Regional Project Manager at the British Council in charge of Badiliko project.
Users of Skype today 26th May 2011 experienced an unfamiliar phenomenon when Skype crashed on their computers and all attempts to re-launch the application failed miserably allowing the user to login only to crash again and again.
Users have been ranting on twitter for the past 2 hours since the crashes became more rampant.
This comes amid recent news that Microsoft bought out the company for 8.5Million US dollars earlier this month.
Some say this is what is in store for Skype users henceforth but we can only wait and see the outcome.
Speculation drives to conclusion that someone is trying to scare the masses by failing an application that many have come to enjoy as free and bug-free in most instances.
Some even joked that the crash came as a sign that Skype is now officially a Microsoft product. (low blow)
Keep it juuchini for updates.
