MoldovaBig things are happening in education for the small Eastern European country of Moldova, located between Romania and Ukraine. The Moldova Education Reform Project was initiated in September 2013 by the Moldovan government, and will be implemented through 2015. The project for sustaining educational reform in Moldova aims to provide opportunities for schools to promote and strengthen educational technology applications, and their use by teachers in classrooms. The project was implemented by the Soros-Moldova Foundation, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, and with the financial support of the Foundations for an Open Society.

14As a result of this project, Netop partner DAAC System Integrator was named as one of two companies to win the endowment, with the task of implementing multimedia classrooms at 29 institutions around the country. The project helps to modernize the schools by installing multimedia classrooms in general education institutions to provide students with computer-assisted training. Each multimedia classroom is equipped with a teacher laptop, 20 student tablets with detachable keyboards, Wi-Fi router, and a high-resolution webcam and speakers. Netop Vision Pro software was installed in each classroom, to enable teachers to interact with and monitor student devices in class.

Check out this article for more details on the project, plus a quick video!

CaptureAttention, North American Netop customers! Now is a great time to take advantage of a special limited-time offer so that you can get your entire school or district ready for the next school year!

The offer:
Existing customers in North America can now migrate their current or expired class kit, open program, and school campus licenses to a larger Vision or Vision Pro campus license at a significant cost savings.

The benefits:
If your school or district has multiple licenses, you can save money and cover every device by migrating to one simple license. And if your school is starting to adopt new devices and technologies for students, adding computer labs, or a combination of both, this is a great opportunity to receive credit for your existing license(s) towards the purchase of a campus license to cover your entire school or district.

Take action!
This offer expires June 30, 2015 – don’t miss out! To learn how little a campus license would cost,  request a quote at:
