Digital divide and accessibility are two areas that are being totally overlooked in other cultures. The site is one of the newly growing sites that are fully encouraging multiple communicative programs and assisting in bridging the gap between the haves and have nots. It offers many useful tools for users to download and this create an impressive platform for acquiring advance resources and help the underdevopled communities to benefit from the internet. This step will accelerate in transferring teaching materials quickly, and enable to establish e-leaning in these regions. However, I hope the Intel program would be extended to include more areas in the world especially those that are lacking in information resources.

The Website is great and gives good examples representing the accessibility issues in the computer world. One of the remarkable examples is the classmate PC in Nigeria. This example shows how one step towards accessibility can makes a tremendous change in the life of student. This extende education might be a movement in the direction of poverty free world!!!
