Digital Arabic Content Promoting Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Arab Region
The growing interest in DAC is reflected in the activities and programmes carried out by several Governments of Arab countries, such as programmes for digitizing Arab cultural heritage content implemented by some ministries of culture, and initiatives by education institutions. However, measuring DAC remains a major challenge, given the limited mechanisms and methods to measure internet content, including social media networks, documents, files and various audio and video media.
