Abstract

Rural Wings is an ambitious wide scale international research project on e-learning through satellite telecommunications. The project uses DVB-RCS satellite technology in order to provide broadband e-learning-services for rural and isolated areas in thirteen countries all over Europe. It is aimed to support the development of a "digital" culture in rural areas and to support formal and informal learning activities by various e-learning applications and scenarios in different learning contexts such as schools, workplaces and homes.
