We estimate there should be an extra OLPC per 100 citizens. So, we need (3,255,745 x 101% = ) about 3,510,000 Type III OLPC(itizen)s at minimum and 110,000 Type III OLPCs for instructors/office workers.
- As we expect One Server per Class, we need 80,000 servers. However, there are some courses whose students are less than 100, a little more servers will be needed.
- Estimated budget: 480,300,000 dollars at least.
