Oracle chief executive Larry Ellison today donated $10 million to help UK school children learn through Internet technology.
The company's investment will fund the development of the Oracle Millennium Project which aims in its initial phase to provide an email address and Web based learning facilities to 10,000 UK school children.
At a press conference in Glasgow today, Prime Minister Tony Blair said he welcomed the investment as part of the drive to realise his vision of a National Grid for Learning.
Blair commented: "I greatly welcome Oracle's investment. It shows we are leading the world in using IT to modernise schools and we are proud that because of this, Oracle has decided to pioneer this technology in the UK."
