An Alberta group is launching a $3.4-million research project this month promises to give Canada a technological lead in sharing educational video, text and graphics over broadband networks. Led by Netera Alliance Inc, the BELLE project works with five locations to test new ways of organizing, distributing and using digital educational material. Another five sites will come onboard by year’s end. If successful, Netera officials hope funding will continue after March 2002 to move the initiative from prototype to a full repository eventually linking every university and college in the country.
