Zero Client Tech Comes to Schools in Rural Malaysia

As part of the Malaysia Education Blueprint (a twelve-year plan focused on improving educational outcomes), the Malaysian government is considering investing in zero client technology for all of its schools nationwide. This technology requires very little power and allows students to work online while their data is secured at a centrally managed desktop offsite.  The government funded an initial project around this technology in more than 1,000 rural and urban schools. One technology partner shared a vivid account of his first installation trip.
