He stated that the pursuit of tertiary qualifications is not limited to the “elite few” these days as “the advances and empowering capabilities of information and communication technologies have enabled higher education to be delivered to the doorsteps, or rather notebooks and computer terminals, of the working adults”.
Prof Wong also mentioned the “coming of age” of the university with its upcoming convocation. He stressed that WOU has built a solid reputation in Malaysia and in Asia as a provider of quality higher education via open distance learning, adding, “Our rigorous quality assurance system has gained the respect and admiration of even some of the older and more established mega open universities in the region.”
The MoA signing ceremony was attended by KLRO director Kuppusamy Chellappan, Bandar Utama Regional Support Office assistant manager Janet Khaw, Corporate Communications manager Lim Yao-han, and some 30 staff and students of KMP International.
Besides KMP International, KLRO is also supported by East West College, Seremban to help promote WOU’s current and future programmes to the population in Negeri Sembilan and Melaka. The MoA between the two parties was signed earlier in June.
