DISTANT EDUCATION AND SKILLS IN RURAL AREAS OF PAKISTAN
KNOWLEDGE SOCIETY INITIATIVE - Life Long Learning Centers for Developing Human Resources through free World Class Education at the Doorsteps
In the digital age world class education as well as skills are universally accessible as such depending on BRICK and MORTAR facilities of questionable standards will fail to prepare competitive HR for a global world. There is definite need for reorientation towards methods and facilities made accessible by technology. 2020 is going to be a year of high speed change in emerging technology. Readers can visit the following post to get a better idea of my advocacy:

Vice Chancellor KIU
KIU is deploying Campus Management System, Learning Management System as part of the Vice Chancellor vision for technological transformation of the institute. Within next 6-9 months most of the operation of KIU will be automated and online. The cited software and learning platform can be integrated once the basic IT infrastructure is laid. Initially the services will be offered through intranet due to poor internet services. Later it will offered at internet once the services improve in GB.
