Zee launches first broadband education service

Zee Interactive Learning Systems, the educational arm of Zee Network, launched India’s first broadband education service —- I-Cell, on Saturday. The service will be offered to students all over the country via a V-SAT network. Besides providing educational services to the students through its centres, I-Cell will also be used to enroll in the over 300 Zed Career Academies.

At present, Zee is offering students the chance to interact live with an expert with the help of V-SAT network. In this way, it is laying the groundwork for broadband as and when it enters India. Then, it plans to offer the broadband-based service in the metros and shift our V-SAT services to smaller towns and cities.

The service will be offered through centres in various states with the use of a sophisticated interactive management system customized for the learning applications.

Zee projected a figure of one lakh students who will benefit in the first phase of the I-Cell project. While the fee for a two month program would range from Rs 300 to Rs 350, a bigger course could entail a fee of Rs 40,000 per annum.

Besides providing educational services to the students through its centres, I-Cell will also be used to enroll in the over 300 Zed Career Academies.
