BELLE project to connect Canadian universities to video, graphical content

News | 02/07/2001 5:00 am EST

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.
