Grant Winners Announced

Support provided for educational webcasting in developing countries

ICTP's Science Dissemination Unit (SDU) congratulates the winners of its first grant programme "International Academic Webcasting Grant for Developing Countries using openEyA". The grants support the automated production of on-line scientific content (via "webinars") and e-learning and distance education (via web lectures).

The grant is meant to contribute to capacity building and development by implementing academic webcasting using openEyA. The grantees have agreed to publish recorded lectures on the web and distribute them freely in digital form for educational purposes.

The four winners, selected from a total of 100 grant submissions, received a complete set of the openEyA recording system (worth about 650 Euros), including all necessary hardware and software.

The four grantees are:

  • E-Learning Unit, Institute of Adult and Continuing Education, Makerere University, Uganda
  • Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, School of Sciences, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Department of Mathematics, University of Valparaiso, Chile
  • Department for Open Distance Learning, University of Bucharest, Romania
