TELENOR Myanmar has begun piloting novel e-learning video courses at selected Telenor Lighthouses to help develop the basic computer literacy and English language skills of the local communities.
E-learning video courses will offer affordable, quality basic computer literacy skills in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and English education.
U Min Thu, head of Myanmar Telenor Corporate Social Responsibilities, said the courses will benefit communities, particularly children from low income households.
Apart from e-Education courses, the Light Houses offer mobile and computer training including how to use mobile internet, Viber, Facebook and basic computer skills, like using Microsoft Word.
“Students can self-learn computer literacy and English courses by following the instructions on the instructional videos. They will be supervised by the Lighthouse entrepreneurs in case they have any questions. We aim to expand the project at Light Houses nationally if the pilot is successful,” U Min Thu said.
Telenor aims to improve digital literacy through
nationwide initiatives for schoolchildren and boost user adoption of mobile connectivity and Internet in rural areas. The centres are run by local entrepreneurs and will be open to anyone in the local community.
