08 Feb Celebrating World Radio Day 2021 – DRM for Education E-book
The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium will be celebrating the 10th World Radio Day (WRD), adopted by the UN General Assembly as an international day in 2012, by supporting the three main themes of the WRD 2021: evolution, innovation, and connection in a very practical way.
On February 11th day the DRM Consortium will be launching its first DRM for Education e-book, as well as the DRM Delivers Education for All initiative, which is a project you may want to learn about, support, get involved in and implement. (If so, please get in touch with: firstname.lastname@example.org)
The DRM e-book makes a strong case for using DRM for distance learning. As a ”one-to many” platform, digital radio DRM can deliver audio and text over vast areas and, therefore, to all the schools and students in villages far away or in busy cities, with the same content and quality and without any discrimination. With the advantages of DRM, the content in audio and text can be listened to and accessed live or they can be stored and replayed. as many times as necessary, later.
Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Chairman, said: “This first virtual education book by the DRM is also an invitation to participate in an exciting adventure, our DRM Delivers Education for All initiative, which by using innovation and creativity will allow partners to introduce radio as the new friend, the trusted guide and teacher to a whole new generation of listeners and to millions of students left out of the education process just now.“
