He stated that the pursuit of tertiary qualifications is not limited to the â€śelite fewâ€ť these days as â€śthe 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 adultsâ€ť.
Prof Wong also mentioned the â€ścoming of ageâ€ť 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, â€śOur 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.â€ť
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 WOUâ€™s current and future programmes to the population in Negeri Sembilan and Melaka. The MoA between the two parties was signed earlier in June.
