Commodore International Ltd has announced the first large-scale UK implementation of its Dynamic Total Vision interactive multimedia player (CI No 1,439), in 120 Derbyshire schools. The CDTVs – as Commodore prefers them to be called – will be available to key schools in the area. The first application for them will be to teach pupils about Japan and the Japanese language – a consequence of Toyota setting up a UKP700m plant down the road. Council leader David Bookbinder hopes that by including Japanese culture in the school curriculum the schools can turn out management and supervisory recruits for Japanese factories in the county. Software is being jointly developed with Global Learning Systems of Derby, which initiated the project. Global hopes to produce a range of software for CDTV after the Japanese project, which should be completed in September, to market in the UK and abroad. The CDTV sells for UKP700 in the UK but the schools will be getting the players at unspecified preferential pricing.
