TIRUCHI: For many, the printed word is still indispensable in the digital age. But for children multi-media holds a big attraction and these are days when exhibitions of DVDs/VCDs are becoming as popular as book exhibitions.

One such exhibition of educational CDs/DVDs, currently underway in the city, has been a big draw over the past few days. The exhibition organised by Dove Multi Media Limited, brings an array of CDs/DVDs of over 10,000 titles for students, right from the children to youths. The products are segregated age-wise and topic-wise for easy access for visitors.

CDs/DVDs on Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology Matriculation syllabus of classes IV to XII are also available at the fair. The organisers claim that this was the first time that DVDs for Physics, Chemistry and Biology have been launched in the market for these classes. They serve as an audio-visual educational guide for students to grasp the subjects in an easy and fun-filled way. The CDs are interactive and include diagrams/illustrations and animation with a clear voice over, they said.

The products are on a range of topics and subjects including language tutors, software tutors, encyclopaedias, yoga, learning systems, competitive exams, personality development, self-improvement, management, medical, health, architecture, interior designing, web designing, music, general knowledge and games.

The kids’ section includes CDs/DVDs on rhymes, traditional stories such as Panchatantra and Tenali Rama, epics/mythology, fairy tales, Thirukkural, Athichudi, Bharathiar songs and national leaders. Discounts of up to 50 per cent are offered on certain titles.

The exhibition is under way at Tiruchi, Thanjavur and Kumbakonam simultaneously.

The exhibition at the Makkal Mandram at Thillai Nagar in Tiruchi will be open between 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. till February 16.
