The stations will start broadcasting on DAB+ on Oct. 1
To celebrate World Radio Day, Digital Radio Mondiale is publishing an ebook focused on “DRM for Education.” This will also mark the consortium’s launch of its “DRM Delivers Education for All” initiative.
On Feb. 13, the group will release the ebook, which details how DRM can be used for distance learning. The Consortium explains that as a “one-to-many” platform, the DRM digital radio platform can deliver audio and text over vast areas. Therefore, it can reach schools and students in villages far away or in busy cities, with the same content and quality and without any discrimination.
The Consortium stresses that the advantage digital radio provides over analog needs to be exploited fully to bridge the educational gap that exists in most countries of the world. The global pandemic has exacerbated and made more visible this issue.
As regards the DRM Delivers Education for All initiative, the organization requests you contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
“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 new generation of listeners and to millions of students recently left out of the education process,” explained DRM Chairman Ruxandra Obreja.
