LINC is a consortium of educators from around the world who are interested in using these technologies to help their countries increase access to quality education for a larger percentage of the population. These educators turn to LINC as an organization through which they can make contact with others like themselves, not only with other educators but also with scientists, innovators, researchers, corporations, and foundations. Given its reputation among educational institutions worldwide, MIT is well-positioned to bring together the kind of educators and experts who are most capable of initiating change and progress when it comes to the role of ICT in educational, social, and economic development in emerging countries.
