Interactive education in the classroom with Pardus ETA
Signed between the Ministry of National Education and TÜBİTAK on October 24, 2019. Software Development and Consulting Agreement Various software developments, including Pardus ETA, continue to be made within the scope of the project.
The Pardus ETA 19 version, developed as a result of the cooperation of TÜBİTAK ULAKBİM and the General Directorate of Innovation and Educational Technologies, will be used in 100 thousand interactive boards across the country, together with the newly procured interactive boards.
The Pardus Interactive Board Interface Project (ETAP) was developed by the Pardus team under TÜBİTAK ULAKBİM with completely domestic resources and built on the Pardus Operating System. ETAP continues to improve with the feedback of volunteer MEB teachers and contribute to education by increasing classroom interaction.
Applications can be easily installed on Pardus ETA using Pardus Store. Pardus ETA makes it possible to log into EBA with a USB key without a password. Thanks to the Screen Dimming feature accessed through the Pardus ETA Panel, a certain part or the whole of the screen can be darkened and all attention can be drawn to the desired information or teacher.
Thanks to the touch actions developed for Pardus ETA, users can make the most effective use of the touch surfaces of the interactive boards. Pardus ETA provides the opportunity to work on more than one board at the same time, enabling teachers to make the most efficient use of interactive boards.
