The promise of Open Course Ware in the education system of Bangladesh

Mashuqur Rahman

Sometimes it is said that the Internet would revolutionize the education system of the world, and it is indeed becoming a reality through the OCW. Open Course Ware or OCW is a new phenomenon in the education world.

Delivered locally, recognised globally

In 2002 the Shanto-Mariam Foundation formed the Bangladesh Institute of Art, Design & Technology in order to provide Bangladesh students with alternative qualifications above HSC level. Subsequently in 2003 when the Shanto-Mariam University of Creative Technology was given Government approval the HND was incorporated into the undergraduate programmes giving Bangladesh students even greater educational flexibility.
