Aakash II Tablet Project

Aakash II Tablet Project

In coming years, the Aakash-II Tablet launched by MHRD, is likely to become a ubiquitous tool in the hands of students. This research aims at developing useful Open Source applications and contents for different versions of the tablet. These will range from animations to scientific computing, and will encompass the entire educational spectrum covering schools, colleges, and professional studies.

GL Bajaj as being one of the Aakash II Tablet centre is proud to be part of this project. Under this collaborative work, the plan is to deploy Aakash-II Tablet in selective engineering colleges in India with two objectives. The first one is to test and enhance the effectiveness of these tablets for use of classroom environment. The second is development of new educational applications and contents on Aakash-II Tablet, largely through final year R&D projects done by BE/ME students.
