The joint DALRRD/CSIR undertaking aims to introduce computer literacy into the ambit and experience of all South Africans through the implementation of the concept of 'unassisted learning'. The aim is to provide people in rural and disadvantaged areas with freely accessible computer equipment and open source software, enabling them to experiment and learn without formal training and with minimal external input. 

The project entails providing access to a multi-terminal multimedia computer system, which provides access to various educational applications and information. Both free-standing systems, and self-contained solar-powered "container DDs" are available.
