Using Technologies and OER to Enhance Efficiency and Effectiveness of Higher Education in Bangladesh: Opportunities and Challenges
The existing capacity of the on-campus institutions is not only insufficient to meet the growing demand for human resources, but also lagging behind in terms of engaging the learners and providing access to educational resources. Adopting technologies meaningfully can have a scalable impact on education in terms of output and quality of education. This paper discusses the benefits of the recently adapted technologies and OERs in some courses of BBA and MBA programs of Bangladesh Open University in terms of better learner engagement, access and learning management. The paper also highlights the challenges of technology integration into the courses and recommends remedial measures to address the challenges. // Paper ID 91
