Philippines-California Advanced Research Institutes (PCARI) Grant
A program of the Commission on Higher Learning (CHED), it aims to develop research, skills and expertise of faculty, students, researchers and staff in Philippine higher education institutes (HEIs) in collaboration with California Universities in the US.
The innovative computer system is designed to allow constant updating by the Philippine Department of Education in distributing learning resources directly to schools and teachers. Thin client computing devices are utilized so that students only have monitor, a keyboard, and a mous, not ul compute system, at their desks. These monitors are connected to two servers that do the computing work in the classroom. CloudTop provides students and teachers access to urated curriculum and p-to-date nformatio via the clou that would otherwise be inaccessible.
PhilDev CloudTop technology is now manufactured and commercialized by an independent private firm, Xepto Computing.
