The three-day event, which will conclude today, has attracted regional and international experts in the field of e-learning.
It features sessions that reflect on the latest trends in nurturing best practices, as well as a competition for the best course and best creative work to improve the environment for e-learning.
An exhibition is also being held on the sidelines of the event, showcasing telecommunication companies, technologies and software related to e-learning as well as learning management systems, e-universities, e-books and e-commerce.
Around 22 research papers were discussed yesterday, including the positive impact of e-learning on education, opinions of university students on learning through smartphones and experience in e-libraries in Bangladesh, among others.
