Under the Access to Information programme in Bangladesh, teachers across the country are developing digital multimedia content for their classrooms.

30,000 teachers in Bangladesh are poised to lead content development with the prodding of the Access to Information (A2I) Programme of the Prime Minister’s Office.

In secondary schools across the country, teachers are developing multimedia content for general subjects for classroom use.

“To help the teachers along, A2I has developed some sample content for the teachers so that they can get ideas of how to develop their own content,” said Afzal Hossain Sarwar, Consultant, A2I.

Besides this sample content, A2I has also developed e-books from all of the national curriculum textbooks, and created e-content on education, health, and agriculture for Bangladesh’s National e-Content Repository - a portal with information in written, audio, video, animation formats for the population’s use.

“To date, the Teacher-led Digital Content Training Programme has developed educational TV programmes, an education portal for teachers across the country to share content, scaled-up the multimedia classroom initiatives, and organised a Digital Education Content Competition for teachers,” said Sarwar. 

Sarwar explained that the Teacher-led Digital Content Training Programme was started in cooperation with the Ministry of Education’s Teacher Quality Improvement in Secondary Education Project (TQI-SEP).
