On February 9th, 2015 Zaya Labs CEO Neil DSouza was gracious enough to come into the PDEEP office for a demonstration on the ClassCloud.The ClassCloud is an innovative educational device that combines the two technologies of a hard disk and wireless routing to create a portable server that runs on batteries and has full android support for both students and teachers to access files remotely within the vicinity of the device. While there are a multitude of possibilities for the usage of this technology we at the PDEEP Project immediately saw its potential for distribution at our partner University AIOU in Islamabad, Pakistan for use with its various programs in math, computer science and non science courses that are making the transition to becoming more fortuitous hybrid online courses.  Zaya Labs, a company based in Mumbai, India has worked with schools all over the world including places such as Tanzania  Zambia and  Mongolia and has produced great educational outcomes through its technology which is essential and akin to the central manifesto of the PDEEP Grant to enhance distance education. This demonstration provided  PDEEP PI & CIES Dean Ruth Huard, Project Director Mark Adams, Dr. Saleem  and I to really sit down and think about the potentially limitless possibilities that could be generated from a collaboration with Zaya and thoroughly enjoyed Neil’s presentation.
