KYAN is the result of Schoolnet’s effort to bring together diverse content – multimedia, animation-based, simulation-based, and so on. The KYAN is an interactive device that allows children to learn at their own pace and level. It has been designed keeping in mind the needs of the Indian education system and the problems faced by children in rural areas.
Designed at IIT Bombay and Schoolnet, KYAN combines a hi-tech projector with a PC, a DVD writer, a TV tuner, in-built speakers, a 500 GB HDD, 3G-Internet, a wireless keyboard, and a mouse – all in one single interactive device. KYAN is an all–in–one, portable, easy-to-use, plug-and-play device that converts any wall into an interactive surface.
