The 3rd Residential School by TIDE (Transformation by Innovation in Distance Education) held an opening ceremony at the Scientific Research Building of Yangon University on 20 May, according to the New Global Light of Myanmar.

Union Minister for Education Dr. Myo Thein Gyi, speaking at the opening ceremony, said the TIDE project is a collaboration between the universities of Myanmar and the UK for developing the distance education system in our country.

The minister said the project aims to impart important skills that will ensure job security for the 500,000 plus students who study via distance education in Myanmar.
