Through video conferencing by the “Innovation Design and Entrepreneurship Academy (iDEA) project” of Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) under the ICT Division, the inaugural ceremony of online class activities was organized at Dhaka Residential Model College on Monday.

State Minister of ICT Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak inaugurated this virtually.

The iDEA project is providing all technical support for this online class. Initially, from now on classes for nine to twelve will be taken online.

The class duration will be 60 minutes with 45 minutes of teaching and the remaining 15 minutes of question and answer (Q&A) sessions. Students will be provided with the class routine including necessary materials in advance.

As part of this, a platform called “Food for Nation” for food, “Health for Nation” for health, and “Education for Nation” for education was formed, said Palak speaking on occasion.

Palak said, “Technology is only the driving force in all areas of business, including education and health. So we want to spread the model of this online education system from each and every places of the city and villages”.

The Startup Bangladesh-iDEA project is also going to start creating an online platform to deliver the same service through online management and with the help of startups in different educational institutions across Bangladesh centering on that education sector, reports the Financial Express.
