Posted by admin on Feb 11, 2009

Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program (TELDAP), a government sponsored program that archives Taiwan’s cultural and natural assets digitally, held an opening ceremony for its annual exhibition in Taipei’s Technology Building yesterday. The exhibition is open to public from now to Feb. 28.

TELDAP is an integrated program of National Digital Archives Program (NDAP) and Program for e-Learning (ELNP), which aims to showcase Taiwan’s cultural, biological and social diversity. This is the first exhibition since the merger in 2008.

“TELDAP has archived 2.18 million of items digitally, with a total number of 3.7 million pieces of data. As for e-learning, thousands of digital courses have been built. Everyone can make use of the resource through the union catalog online,” said the Program Director Liu Tsui-jung at the opening ceremony. She is also vice president to Academia Sinica.
