New Delhi: HCL Technologies on Wednesday said it will create an online technology hub for schools and businesses in collaboration with North Carolina New Schools which will promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programmes in North Carolina state of the USA.
HCL will design the hub which will serve as a central gathering place for featured content and discussion between teachers, school staff, students, counsellors, district office superintendents and NC New Schools' administration staff among others, the company said in a statement.
"As an extension of HCL's ongoing efforts to help develop the next-generation workforce, this collaboration with NC New School gives schools and businesses the necessary tools and skill sets required to support students understand STEM and pursue growth opportunities in these areas," HCL America President Shami Khorana said.
NC New Schools will use HCL's services for content creation and management of its online resources. NC New Schools will move approximately 3,000 of its intranet users to the new technology hub.
"Partnering with world-class organisations like HCL significantly strengthens our ability to reach beyond the classroom and provide students with the real-world learning and career-related experiences that prepare them for post-secondary success," NC New Schools President Tony Habit said.
