Developing the Educational Ecosystem of the Maldives: Launch of an Internet Radio System
Launch of the Internet Radio Facility, Male, Maldives, 3 December 2009, Remarks by Sir John Daniel, Commonwealth of Learning // Today we launch an Internet Radio system for the Maldives. Internet Radio combines the strength of the Internet, with its ability to allow people to adapt communications technology to their own needs, with the power of the mass media to reach many people. // I am delighted that COL and CEMCA have been able to help the Maldives put this Internet Radio in place and to salute the important role of the Open University Malaysia in the project. OU Malaysia’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Anuwar Ali and his Deputy, Professor Mansoor Fadzil are here with us. Their presence gives me personal pleasure because I had the privilege of being made an honorary doctor of OU Malaysia last month.
