SchoolWeb Project Republic
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA -- Educational Telecommunications
Services (ETS), a division of Alternet Systems Inc. (NASD
OTCBB:ASYI ), announces the approval of a SchoolWeb project
for the Republic of Guinea, in cooperation with the Ministry
of Education. The multi-phase project will lead to a country
wide deployment in the primary and secondary schools of Guinea.
The system employs a unique wireless broadband design, coupled
with innovative and highly desirable content-based services.
Guinea is strategically one of the most dynamic markets in
Sub-Saharan Africa with a population base of over 7 million,
with approximately 2 million school children between the age
of 5 and 18 who would benefit by improving literacy and their
overall work skills.
Alternet Systems sees Guinea as a critical milestone in our
long term business goal of providing quality education technology
in a country whose economic potential has yet to be achieved.
Our goal is to improve family planning and the health and
welfare of women and children, providing quality basic education
to a larger percentage of Guinean children, with emphasis
on girls and rural children, and fostering continued democratic
progress through strengthening of civil society.
Alternet Systems is dedicated to teaming with governmental
and business leaders of developing nations to provide cost
effective broadband Internet access to schools and medical
clinics in the most remote areas of their countries.
SchoolWeb is a strategic education technology that creates
a user friendly, Internet learning environment for teachers
and students. Combining online courseware with a virtual Internet
library, SchoolWeb provides all the tools required to create
a high-quality learning environment for students and teachers
in the digital age.
The SchoolWeb network server system is basically an ISP-in-a-box
that gives the schools the same capability that would be available
through an Internet Service Provider, even though there may
not be an ISP for hundreds of kilometres.
Alternet Systems Inc. is an education technology and software
provider enabled by a Managed Broadband Wireless Network.
By combining educational software with leading edge technology
Alternet provides the Republic of Guinea the ability to deploy
a self sustaining architecture and continually support new
