E-learning Via Satellite: Offering a Window on a World of Opportunities

New generations of satellites are providing high throughput, low latency connectivity in areas that cannot be supported by terrestrial means. Not only does satellite connectivity benefit students with access to online courses and research databases, but it also provides training and programming for more effective teaching.

Satellites are necessary to achieve the UN’s goal of ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education for all by 2030. Governments and policymakers are well advised to make best use of this immediately available technology.
