About the eTekkatho library

Myanmar Quotes
"This is good for Myanmar students to learn, read and study"

With millions of resources openly available on the Internet, it can be difficult to find useful material. We have reviewed and evaluated hundreds of resources to help you find key resources in your subject.

The eTekkatho library currently contains open digital educational resources which cover subjects to support the national curriculum and university curricula in all our partner universities.

The focus of the library is on open educational resources, but, some have been included with specific permission from the publishers.
