At eINDIA 2008, Intel and several members of the newly-formed Ecosystem Vendor Alliance (EVA) demonstrated a broad end-user education solution optimised for Intel-powered classmate PCs.

Recognising that educators need more than just hardware and management software to utilise the benefits of technology-enhanced learning, the Alliance connects ICT and education members from around the world by letting them share common opportunities, resources and experience. The Alliance also provides tools, training, sales and marketing collateral, and online match-making of ecosystem partners in addition to allowing vendors to list their products or services on, where educators can search for applications, tools and content that will meet specific needs by subject, age, language and country.

Today the Alliance includes: operating system vendors (OSVs); independent software vendors (ISVs) who provide educational software applications for classroom use and edutainment applications for retail use; independent content providers (ICPs) who provide local educational content for specific school subjects; independent hardware vendors (IHVs) who provide peripherals and accessories (with control software) as educational tools for classrooms and retail edutainment packages; and educational service providers (ESPs), who provide various services to ensure the successful implementation of technology-enhanced education in the classroom.

Intel will be ramping up the benefits of the Ecosystem Vendor Alliance programme, the functionality of the website, and the number of members worldwide in the coming months. With more configuration designs in the pipeline, Intel is determined to deliver more products that bring PC accessibility closer to end users the world over.
