headlines - eToyiToyi - R1bn later, Gauteng Online is no more. The Gauteng Department of Finance has scrapped the Gauteng Online Schools Project and is issuing new tenders for what it now calls e-Learning Solutions. Last week, the department issued a tender inviting prospective service providers to supply internet connectivity, among other things, to schools. The tender with the previous service provider that built 1 538 computer labs, Cloudseed, was cancelled in March. The labs were each stocked with 25 computers and other equipment.Under the new e-Learning Solution, the department is looking to move from using traditional personal computers to “end-user devices” such as tablets. In May, a closed tender was issued to about 15 companies, asking them to provide 80 000 tablets for 1 600 schools, with each school receiving 50 tablets.http://www.iol.co.za/scitech/technology/news/r1bn-later-gauteng-online-is-no-more-1.1534193#.UcG6MfaOBLQ
