Zimbabwean operator Econet Wireless has launched a four-month pilot for a scheme called EcoSchool, which aims to provide resources, lecture notes and educational content at discounted prices.
This information will be provided on customised EcoSchool tablets, bundled with affordable data packages. Content can also be accessed using any registered Android tablet.
Students participating in the pilot will pay $5 a month for access to the tablet, eTextbook platform and allocated data. Econet says after EcoSchool is commercially launched, prospective users will be able to subscribe by registering at an approved Econet shop.
