Abstract
Capturing and sharing of local content in accordance to the need of the community is an essential step towards people’s participation in the developmental process. ICT have a tremendous scope to preserve and share indigenous knowledge, which can enhance people’s opportunities and be a major source of empowerment – especially the socially and economically backward. This is an approach paper focussed towards people’s participation by bringing technology closer to them. The methodology of “lab to land” adopted by a farm for using ECKO to make it a success has been explained elaborately which can be replicated elsewhere for telecentre’s approach. Learning, challenges faced and the edge of the technology over other community based management system has also been brought into the picture to draw one’s attention while taking technology to the people.
