Few words about ATab from the CEO’s of AcrossWorld and Go-Tech:
Dr. Stephan Thieringer, President and CEO of AcrossWorld says, Open Source is the future of education. With the availability of ATab, Indian schools will be able to discover and leverage world class educational content at their fingertips at the K-12 level itself as well as at the college and University level. It is very timely and appropriate that Indian schools and colleges alike seriously explore advanced technology solutions that provide isntant access to the world’s best educational resources, especially now within an affordable budget.
Gaurav Khanna, CEO of Go-Tech says, While inclusive growth must ensure that access to technology is within the reach of the masses, yet providing just the hardware is not enough. While inclusive growth must ensure that access to technology is within the educational content. By bundling free access to AcrossWorld’s global premium educational content, ATab is not just a book shelf, but a whole library full of the world’s best Open Source Knowledge for schools and higher educational institutes. When I was studying Electrical Engineering at Virginia Tech, the motto of our University was, Ut Prosim, meaning, That I May Serve. I am pleased to have an opportunity to serve my country with this low-cost innovation that will impart knowledge to the masses.
