Three hundred new computers will soon be shipped out to northern communities.


The units come about as a result of savings accumlated by the coordinators of the Headwaters Project, an initiative launched over two years ago designed to bring technology to isolated communities.


Randy Johns is one of the people responsible for helping expand Internet usage in Northern Saskatchewan. He says an attempt is currently being made to work out an agreement between the centres and the Northern Development Board to extend the project for another two years.


Johns says distance education is one of the ways in which information technology can be used to benefit Northern Saskatchewan.


He notes progrss in e-commerce is already being made.
