DTK Computer has been demonstrating a new ‘e-class’ computer network system that could, potentially, change the face of teaching. Launched at Gitex, the company’s ‘electronic classroom’ product is a complete, end-to-end solution for the provision of computers in schools.

It consists of three main elements: a central server on which all software for the entire network is installed; multimedia ‘student stations’, each with their own ‘e-box’ for connectivity to the network; and, finally, the teacher’s machine.

As well as providing the hardware, the company has also developed a range of educational programs for the system, called ‘Multimedia Interactive Learning Software’. This allows the teacher to control all machines on the network and to interact with students electronically.

Mr Khaled Abu Koush said, “Our aim with this product is to change the effectiveness of teaching.”
