Where did the project idea come from?
The motivation is driven by the growing demand for optimized content developed and designed to meet the requirements of the end-users and consumers in the global market. To overcome deficiencies in Bangladesh, bit media e-solutions in cooperation with a local subcontractor will adopt and transfer Austrian technologies and know-how to Bangladesh. EduTech system solution is based on LMS, e-Learning Content Library, e-Content Authoring, e-Testing, and communication technology solution.
Why did you select that specific target country?
In the Bangladeshi market, there are currently not many suppliers who offer a full range of digital education solutions; therefore, the idea is to introduce innovative ICT solutions.
The government implements Vision 2030: Digital Bangladesh, which is extremely beneficial for the introduction and implementation of the EduTech system solutions.
