Therefore sharing is very important to step towards the change. Adoption of online learning process needs to start. Few affluent students get touch of excellent education materials mostly in urban areas in Bangladesh. With the portal and the mobile application as well, edutubebd.com is such a platform where these facilitated students, well known teachers will provide their materials absolutely free just to help & enhance another student who couldn't access it because of location & affordability.
At present, students of the secondary, higher secondary or universities attend class lectures given by their class teachers or they take notes from private tutors, and in urban areas sometimes they share their electronic version of the content through emails or flash-drive. The exchange of contents remain in the close circle of students and the life cycle of the contents ends when the students move to new classes. Sometimes the lecture notes or books are kept at family level for the younger members in the family. However, these notes prepared with extensive labor, care, and attention could serve wider audiences and help other student better prepared their lessons. In this era of communication technology, there have been couple of alternative ways to help the students with their study in addition to the traditional teacher driven education systems.
