Scotland: "Stay Home, Highland Laddie"

Scotland: "Stay Home, Highland Laddie"

Wired News' profile of the University of the Highlands and Islands' (UHI) efforts to bring educational opportunities to Scots in remote villages.

"The proponents of UHI -- which should reach university status by 2007 -- rely heavily on what development agency Highlands and Islands Enterprise Chairman Jim Hunter dubs a "telecoms revolution." Without it, linking a population of 208,600 spread across 10,000 square miles wouldn't be possible."

"The UHI project's networks and applications development manager Jem Taylor oversees the task of linking 15 existing campuses with around 50 video-conferencing learning centers (such as the one at Kilchoan ) across a sprawling region with a population density of just eight people per square kilometer."
