Carleton University launches project to overcome digital divide

March 27, 2008

Carleton University plans to narrow Canada's digital divide by bringing technology into rural and remote communities.  The university's Centre for Community Innovation will offer an "essential workplace skills" project that will use technology to overcome geographic distance, time, infrastructure and computer literacy barriers.  The project will use video and audio-graphic conferencing, satellite radio, podcasts and collaborative wiki's (online white boards) to "foster an entrepreneurial work culture in central and eastern Canada."  The Ottawa Citizen
