"Rural Schools Virtual Communities for Education in the Cloud" is a research project carried out by the Supercomputing Center of Galicia (Spain) and funded by HP Labs in California (USA).

We intend to design, implement and evaluate an exciting experience in rural schools: using cloud computing as a means of sharing, learning and getting the most out of tight IT resources located in a small rural school network in the NorthWest of Spain, Galicia. This will be a pilot to learn the best ways to get cloud computing to be really useful for rural schools anywhere, and we intend to share our results, products and findings with the same spirit we get from others: Open Source. Knowledge only grows when shared!
