The concept for the Mongolian Education Channel (Bolovsrol suvag) was hatched in 2005 by representatives of the Mongolian government, the National Radio Television Department and other groups.
After months of planning and organising, the Education Channel became a reality and its first broadcast took place on 11 July 2007, to viewers in Ulaanbaatar.
Countrywide broadcasting began the same year on 1 September and viewers of The Education Channel have since continued to increase daily.
The Mongolian Education Channel was created to elevate the standard of television in Mongolia and to positively enhance the lives of television viewers. It is dedicated to showing high-quality, instructive programming that not only improves the lives of its audience but also inspires people to learn and expand their worlds.
The channel’s programming covers topics such as:
• Health and exercise
• Children, youth, and family
• Society and law
• Culture, heritage, and language
• Science and technology
• General education
• Educational movies and documentaries
The majority of the channel’s programming is created by its internal team that consists of highly skilled editors, journalists and directors using resources from the Internet, local libraries, educational organisations, advice from consultants, and knowledge and resources of Mongolian-based foreign embassies and cultural organisations.
All programming is created with the viewers in mind and their feedback is highly valued.
