In October 1969, the Nehru Foundation for Development and Experiments in Art and Technology assembled a group of Indians and Americans with specialties related to instruction and television, including both artists and engineers. The group met in India during December 1969 and developed a proposal for local input towards the development of instructional software for television. The project was centered in the rural villages in the Anand Dairy Cooperative and concentrated on information and instruction for the women who raise and tend the milk-producing buffalo. The proposals for using 1/2 inch video cameras to collect material for testing and to be used as the basis for the final instructional programs have been adopted and widely used during the SITE television satellite project.
