Localization of digital content (LDC) in Bangladesh is aimed at the production of graphical and video content adapted for the local curriculum and suitable for use in secondary schools. Teachers learnt how to make PowerPoint presentations into which they can incorporate video, audio and graphical content downloaded from the Internet. Empowering teachers to use internationally available video, audio and graphical content is a major target of LDC because exposing students to this sort of content allows the teacher to expand students' horizons and to improve their understanding of concepts and issues that are difficult to explain using words alone. The use of ICTs in the classroom makes it possible for teachers to enrich the learning experience in such a way that older technologies did not. The main purpose of the work was to identify how localization of digital content helps both teachers and students to make a joyful class and to create a learning friendly environment by using multimedia in classes. In this paper we observed that students are now more motivated to learn in the classes, their creativity and analytical capacity is enhanced, adaptation of participatory and student-centered activities are enhanced.
