this is nextlab

NextLab is a hands-on design course in which students research, develop and deploy mobile technologies for the next billion mobile users in developing countries. Guided by real-world needs as observed by local partners, students work in multidisciplinary teams on term-long projects, closely collaborating with NGOs and communities at the local level, field practitioners, and experts in relevant fields.

It’s a very interesting way in managing and resolving real world problems. I wish that more universities could offer those kinds of inspiring projects for their students to administer. Most of the colleges operate in an “academic bubble” that separates them from the “real world”. Systems don’t operate exactly like in economic books and it is important for students to understand.
