LTSP Training of Trainers conducted

LTSP (Linux Training of Trainers) technology is gaining momentum in Nepal considering the impact that it can cause at very low cost. Organizations like Help Nepal Network and FOSS Nepal have set up a vision of establishing 1 e-library per district. I am proud to be associated with this vision and was one of the deployers of the e-library project in Bhaktapur district.

The vision itself is very innovative since it not merely empowers rural Nepal but also students of technical institutions who are given opportunity to go to different parts of Nepal to set up the e-library. Since, not much students are familiar with the use of this technology, a training was conducted. This was the second training on LTSP being conducted, last one being conducted on 15-16 December '07. I was part of the instructing team for both the training events.

I have made a blog post of the training @
