The reality of affordable web conferencing makes this possible. Video conference rooms can be shared thus making it possible for many classrooms to… Continue

Dear Richard Potvin,
Thanks for your intention to learn about Nabik Computer System & Human Relation.
It is a faithful centre where the rural and unprivileged people gather to receive trainings on computer programs and other technologies and to know rural information. I am earnestly demanding your suggestions on my system.

Not "promoting" any WC programs. I am using Skype (sometimes with VuRoom add-in) and Elluminate, and have participated in Webinars using Webex and GoToMeeting, among others. If asked, I'd say I prefer Elluminate overall.

Hi Richard,
Sure our centres receives lots of visitors and users.We are located in the outskirts of our major town within a small scale traders(jua kali) market.They are many young and old clients who use the internet and other computer services.

We only have one centre at the moment,but we would like to extend to other rural areas targeting a different group of beneficiaries especialy farmers.They need to learn how to use ICT in agriculture.
