Facilitating Distance Learning using Digital Conferencing Facility

September 25 - September 27

The first activity (Kick-off/preparatory workshop) of Asi@Connect WP5 Project “Facilitating Distance Learning using Digital Conferencing Facility” is going to be held in Office of the Higher Education Commission (OHEC), Bangkok, Thailand during 25-27 September 2018. Thailand Research Education Network Association (ThaiREN) is hosting this Kick-off workshop.  The project is being implemented by Bangladesh Research and Education Network (BdREN) in collaboration with NORDUnet, Denmark.

The project is aimed at deploying a Digital Conferencing Platform for enhancement of collaboration, distance learning and knowledge sharing that will connect faculties, students, researchers, experts and resources from anyone to anywhere. Deploying the platform within the TEIN itself locally will provide optimal performance and minimize dependency on resources in Europe or the US.

Thirteen participants from the beneficiary country’s Research and Education Networks-Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand are expected to attend the workshop. Two Instructors/Resource persons from NORDUnet, Denmark will be attending the workshop to appraise the technical design and hardware, software, technical features of the distance learning system and also provide hands-on training on the system.

Bangladesh Research and Education Network (BdREN) will cover for your travel expenses, including the economic round trip airfare and per diems (up to 4 nights) from Asi@Connect fund during your stay in Bangkok.

The objectives of the workshop are

  • Interacting with contact personnel of beneficiary countries and principal investigators.
  • Sharing requirements of each beneficiary country.
  • Evaluating the requirements against available resource.
  • Optimizing requirements or management of additional resources to meet the requirements.
  • Identifying responsibilities of each beneficiary NREN.
  • Preparing a “Road Map” for the whole project.
