About / Overview
In September 1993, the bureau of
education of Tainan City has submitted the Educational
Experimental Network Plan to the Ministry of Education.
After rounds of careful selection, there were 25
counties and cities outstood others. In June, 1994 they
supported this city to establish the Educational Network
Center (Temporarily located in Municipal Jinsyue
Elementary School and is a subsidiary of our Bureau) It
is to cooperate with Ministry of Educationˇ¦s policy to
promote information technology education to schools and
create a network of educational information for both
pupils and teachers of primary and secondary schools,
enabling the teachers and students to connect to
internet from home and schools. The Educational Network
Centre is aimed to create a better environment for
information exchange and anticipate that more students
and teachers can be benefited and apply the knowledge
acquired from schools and daily lives- it is to elevate
educational and living standards, at the same time
preparing students for the life skills of future
electronic society. We truly understand the importance
of information network and actively applying for funding
from the Ministry of Education to support this center
with limited resources that created this educational
information network of Tainan City.
Educational Network Center has been established for a
number of years, offering education bureau, schools,
teachers, students and parents different network
services to increase efficiency of administration and
improve teaching method. In 1995, we constructed a
bulletin board system (BBS) to assist teachers of
primary and secondary schools of the city in online
teaching and assist them to resolve teaching obstacles.
Furthermore, we promoted ˇ§Email to Schoolsˇ¨ and ˇ§TANet
to Schoolsˇ¨ Plans in 1996. In 1998-1999 it has been

In the same year, it was the first to establish MAN to
