Aakash is an Android-based tablet computer promoted by the Government of India as part of an initiative to link 25,000 colleges and 400 universities in an e-learning program. It is produced by the British-Canadian company DataWind

It is emerging as a key ICT tool for effective use of Information and Communication Technologies.

Aakash project at IIT Bombay is dedicated to the development of useful applications and contents for use with Aakash. It attempts to empower teachers by using a unique blend of technology, e-contents, and an innovative pedagogy.

While the main focus of this project is on engineering education, it is proposed to use the creative talent of these professional students and teachers, to develop applications and contents for all levels of education, including school education in Indian languages.

It aims at developing useful Open Source applications and content for use on Aakash. These will encompass the entire educational spectrum from schools to colleges and from vocational training to professional studies.

Its goal is to complete useful development of engineering colleges, and to build a large community of thousands of these talented professional students and teachers, to carry out large scale development of applications and content for use in all schools and colleges. Content in Indian languages will receive special attention.

Its long term vision is to create and sustain collaborative research efforts to work continuously on Aakash related R&D.

Aakash project will coherently synergize all these efforts, to make the tablet an integral part of all the deliverables.

Its initial efforts have already led to success in porting some key applications such as: use of digital video content developed using the ProxyMITY tool and spoken tutorials, ‘Clicker’ classroom response system, controlling an educational Robot using Aakash, and basic programming environment for Aakash permitting programming in C, C++, Python, and Scilab.
