  • We received a request from a medical school in Ethiopia for ICT options to support online and local offline collaboration at a medical school for:1. video conferencing, for real-time transmission of audio, video, files, and

    screens 2. lecture capture, for capturing audio, video, slides, and drawing 3. interactive learning environments, for central storage class-related

    materials, for supporting exercises such as question and answers (Q&A), physical and virtual spaces that facilitate peer to peer learning

    4. integrated library management systems, such as a catalog of the physical and virtual collections, circulation details, and acquisitions

    As an initial response to this request, for each of the above areas we have included: Conceptual models Analysis, sample software, sample hardware, and approximate cost for

    each model References
