About the eTekkatho library
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.
The eTekkatho libraries contain educational resources that have been adapted to work without the need for an internet connnection. These include:
- British Council resources to help you learn English langauge
- Khan Academy video lessons, many with Myanmar subtitles

In addition to the online version of the document library, these local installations also include the eTekkatho Special Collections, off-line versions of Wikipedia in English and Myanmar, Fuse School videos, Khan Academy training videos, complete virtual courses from the University of Manchester, Yaung Zin teacher training materials and a mirror site of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) OpenCourseWare, which contains teaching and learning materials for around 2,000 undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
You can also access eTekkatho at high speed from the pre-college program room at Phaung Daw Oo and the public library at Brahmaso Humanitarian Aid Organization in Mandalay. We plan to add more partner universities and community libraries to the eTekkatho network in late 2015.
