Compared to Khanya projects and Kozma who focused in their countries not only on a Province. Gauteng on line focused on Gauteng province as part of South Africa Many stakeholder in education were not consulted e.g ELSEN schools. The equipment used were supposed to be adjustable to meet the needs of disabled learner.(mouse control) .The community does not take ownership of the school computers as the principal fear that when exposing the computers to the community can lead to thief and vandalism of the school property in need of computers (school safety) Gauteng online projects Gauteng on line provide all learners access to quality education, Through E-learning make notable advantage s in supplying skilled learner for the further study and employment which improve South African culture citezenship. Learners with barriers are supported with tools method and tools but not on practical sense as they cannot handle the mouse or keyboards. Educators development was not effective as educators were trained for a week on E-learning for a week period fewer busaries were awarded to educators The projects also involve the provision of an intergrated big screen T V set a D V D ,video recorder and a satellite dish in each and will benefit more than500000 learners in Gauteng More than R18million has been lost in the Gauteng on line school project .(GOSP the project has lost about R3 billion since its inception in 2002 and computers equipment worth over R18,5 million has been lost to theft since 2000 The laboratory is essential failing always offline.
