ASTANA – Qalam, a new online historical and educational platform, offers wider access to Kazakh and Central Asian history, making it easier for audiences to engage and interact with materials, said the editor-in-chief and historian Zhar Zardykhan during the presentation on Dec. 19 in Astana. In the absence of consistent access to museums and libraries, online platforms play a pivotal role in delivering reliable content prepared by professional historians, writers and journalists worldwide.
He added: “Since our project is online, we want to give school students and people who are interested in the history of the country, the regions and the world an opportunity to access information. It is well known that not every place has libraries and not all materials could be available to them,” said Zardykhan.
Among the authors are historians from Canada, China, France, Great Britain, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, the United States and Uzbekistan, among other countries. For use of this platform click on https://qalam.global/en.
