The Remote Indigenous Public Internet Access (RIPIA) program delivers computer training and maintenance of existing public internet access equipment in remote Indigenous communities.
The RIPIA Ngaanyatjarra Lands project is a partnership between IRCA and Ngaanyatjarra Media and is funded by the Government of Western Australia Department of Regional Development.
Under this project, Ngaanyatjarra Mediawill conduct a full audit of the equipment and facilities in each of the 13 communities. The aim is to repair the equipment and facilities to provide access to the internet and a minimum of four operational computers for training. At the same time, Ngaanyatjarra Media will establish a remote access maintenance program that can respond to operational failures in both hardware and software.
Everyday Digital Skills
The Everyday Digital Skills program will deliver training in IT skills to members of the 13 Ngaanyatjarra communities. Training will be in basics of computers and mobile devices, accessing and using the internet, computer, mobile and tablets usage, privacy and online safety, word/text, multimedia apps, and Ara Irititja archival project.
