OUM International Centre

When Britain first introduced the penny post in 1840, Isaac Pitman started offering a correspondence course in shorthand. It was the beginning of a new method of education: distance education.

Less than two hundred years later, the new wave of education is riding on the exponential ways technology is being used to transmit information. Distance education has gone digital, making knowledge more accessible than ever.
Pitman Training is one of Britain's largest providers of IT, Office, Book-Keeping and Business Skills training. And won the silver award for UK's Best Learning Centre in The National IT Training Awards!
Located in High Holborn, Notting Hill and Paddington, London. Pitman Training operates in two ways:
Pitman shorthand course in malaysia:
1) study at your own pace using a PC, audio track and workbook, or
2) enjoy one of the open seminars at training centers.

Today's knowledge explosion is propelled by the fact that education is seen as the birthright of all and sundry. What was once elitist is now increasingly democratized, leading to rapid growth of educational providers worldwide. In making education radically accessible, technology also holds the promise of dramatically reducing educational costs. The cost of storing and transmitting information via online technology is falling compared to the rising costs of traditional education. Larger volumes of people now have access to a wider platform of knowledge resources.
"People are hungry for knowledge, especially in developing countries," says Prof Ansary Ahmed, Senior Vice President, Open University Malaysia (OUM). "Open and distance learning (ODL) provides an affordable option for them to gain quality higher education."

OUM has always positioned itself as a global educational provider in view of the increasing demand for higher education. The university first made inroads to other countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and
Maldives by providing customized professional courses to them through the international arm of its Institute of Professional Development (IPD) unit.

In 2003, OUM International was formally set up with the task of developing strategies to cater to the educational needs of other countries. The unit is a one stop centre for international contacts, working in concert with the university's IPD unit, faculties and affiliations with 11 national universities. The combination provides a comprehensive pool of educational, developmental and human resources, which contributes towards making Malaysia a centre of educational excellence in the region.

"Institutions of higher education are now facing more demands for accountability and are seen as contributing factors of a country's GDP," notes Prof Ansary. "ICT has also changed today's education, making it imperative for academic institutions to re-engineer themselves."

"They have to look beyond traditional setups and exercise flexibility to keep up with global changes to remain relevant and sustainable in a knowledge-based economy."

Transportability of learning credits has also paved the way for cross-border higher education providers like OUM. Cross-border higher education is described by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), in their Guidelines for Quality Provision in Cross Border Higher Education as "higher education that takes place when students follow a course or programme of study that has been produced, and is continuing to be maintained, in a country different from the one in which they are residing."
Cross-border higher education entails an acceptance of national borders, thus implying recognition of the roles and responsibilities of national governments within their jurisdictions, not only for deciding who to let into their country but also for overseeing the national higher education system. This helps in creating guidelines for quality assessment of cross-border higher education.
Incidentally, OUM is assessed by UNESCO as one of the world's best ODL institutions and is UNESCO's Asia Pacific host. OUM is widely considered as a notable ODL model and numerous universities from other countries have visited OUM to study its ODL processes.

To date, OUM has signed MoUs and MoAs with 25 institutes of higher learning from countries such as the UK, France, Australia, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Yemen. Egypt, Bangladesh, Korea, and Sudan.

The university's first Regional Learning Centre (RLC) is based in the Middle East at the University of Science & Technology, Sana'a, in Yemen. Its second RLC is Universitas Riau in Pekan Baru, Sumatra, Indonesia. OUM has signed at least five MoUs with institutes of higher education in Indonesia alone. Its third RLC is Arab Open University in Manama, Bahrain. From Bahrain, OUM has extended its reach to include Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Currently, OUM hosts 200 international students, most of them from the Middle East. The university aims to triple the number by the end of 2007. OUM also plans to open learning centres in Singapore, Libya, Oman, Pakistan, Vietnam, China, and India.

On the local front, OUM is offering twinning programmes with France for postgraduate courses in Competitive Intelligence and IT, in addition to its usual variety of courses, which totals 47 between five faculties. The university also plans to create similar programmes for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Nursing with the University of South Africa (UNISA). UNISA is an ODL institution that has run nursing programmes for 30 years and is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) for postgraduate nursing.

More about Open University Sabah
 



The new purpose-built learning centre began operations in April 2008 and can accommodate 1,000 students at any one time.

OUM Sabah learning centre was among 10 nationwide and fully owned by OUM. To date, OUM has invested over RM100 million to build or acquire these centers.
Students of the Open University Malaysia (OUM) in Sabah can now look forward to a more conducive learning environment with the inauguration of a new building. The three-storey building, housing OUM's learning centre, is located near the Kota Kinabalu International Airport. It is equipped with facilities such as a library, administrative offices, a surau, examination halls and computer labs.

The labs have 130 internet-ready computers to cater to student needs.

By having its own premises, OUM had demonstrated its commitment to giving students the best.

With the new building, students now have access to better facilities and quality services.
OUM could help Sabah develop its human capital, thereby contributing to the success of the Sabah Development Corridor (SDC). The SDC project was vital for Sabah, particularly in providing balanced development for the urban and rural areas. OUM also opened four other centers in Tawau, Sandakan, Keningau dan Labuan.
OUM Sabah, with a total student enrolment of about 6,600, had developed quickly.
OUM Sabah learning centre began operations in January 2002 from rented premises at Wisma Prudential in Kota Kinabalu with an initial intake of 50 students.

In September 2003, it moved operations to the Sembulan campus, Kolej Yayasan Sabah, with a student population of 1,310.

 


Open University of Malaysia (OUM) is aiming to produce more specialist nurses for Malaysia. The open university is now offering the Bachelor of Nursing Sciences (Honours) programme to meet the Malaysia acute need for specialist nurses. This two-year programme enables those with the Diploma In Nursing to pursue further studies in the health and medical fields.

The programme is offered to holders of a basic diploma in nursing who are registered with the national nursing board, OUM receives overwhelming response from all parties as the programme is unique based on its flexibility. The programme focuses on clinical expertise and direct involvement implemented via clinical training at participating hospitals.

Health Ministry and several teaching hospitals offer clinical training for those taking the programme. The health ministry has allowed OUM to use clinical facilities at 21 government hospitals nationwide. OUM has also received the nod from Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) and Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) for the same purpose.

Among the cooperation agreed is the utilization of clinical facilities for six fields:
> Trauma and Emergency Nursing
> Critical Care Nursing
> Mental Health Nursing
> Paediatrics Nursing
> Renal Nursing
> Oncology Nursing

Senior nurses at participating hospitals will function as clinical supervisors. They will give direct teaching and supervision in wards based on the printed and electronic modules issued. Students will be supplied with the laboratory skills virtual aid to help them prepare for the clinical training.


There is currently a high demand for male nurses, OUM also encourages more men to apply for the course. The government wants males to join the nursing profession and its target is to produce 300 male nurses from the 3,000 qualified nurses produced every year.
The need for male nurses is high at the current international trend. Male nurses have a more specific role as compared to female counterpart.
In wards, management of male patients is better handled by nurses of the same gender. This is an expanding concept and in the future more hospitals will be nurse-centric instead of being doctor-centric
UNIVERSITI TERBUKA MALAYSIA's concept of a university for all and distance learning does not discriminate any gender as it encourages those from both genders of any age to join its programmes. OUM has draw out a programme and provide information for all on the need for nurses of both genders. Participation of more male nurses in this degree course, at the ratio of one to ten for male/female is hoped to change the society's view on the involvement of men in the nursing profession
 



Open & Distance Learning Pedagogy Centre - The ODL Pedagogy Centre (ODLPC) was established to enhance the delivery system of OUM specifically in the areas of teaching and learning. It aims to realize the vision of OUM in becoming a world class leader and innovator in pedagogical sciences related to open and distance learning.Beginning January 2007, Open and Distance Learning Pedagogy Centre will begin the research : Developing Models of Effective and Meaningful Learning in an ODL Environment Using Multimode Technologies for Selected Subjects. This new research highlights the development of learning models for the foundation courses.
OUM adopts a blended learning approach to suit the needs of its 60,000 Open and Distance Learners. The blended learning approach in OUM encompasses face-to-face, self-managed learning and e-learning or online learning. In an open and distance learning (ODL) environment where instructors and learners have limited face-to-face contact, it is crucial that the teaching and learning practices meet the learners' needs. Serious consideration is needed to ensure whether the existing blended learning model truly generates meaningful learning among learners and satisfy their needs and expectations.

Open University Malaysia (OU Malaysia) was established in August 2000 under the Private Higher Education Act 1996. Backed by the 11 public universities in the country, OU Malaysia is set to create opportunities for Malaysians to fulfill their academic aspirations through our “education for all” concept. If you possess strong customer and achievement oriented competencies, able to work well in a team and have a strong desire to make things happen, you could be the individual OUM is looking for to work and progress with.

Distance Learning from Private Universities in Malaysia:
6 Private Universities and 2 Public University are offering long distance learning programmes in Malaysia

These are the Eight Higher Learning Institutions offering open long distance learning programmes in 2013:
1) Al-Madinah International University
2) Universiti Tun Abdul Razak
3) Wawasan Open University
4) Malaysia Open University
5) Asia e University
6) International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance

7) Universiti Putra Malaysia
8)
The School of Distance Education (SDE) Universiti Sains Malaysia


The idea of anyone entering university without even a primary school certificate may seem absurd to people who are used to universities being hallowed grounds where only the best go.

Yet, open universities have been around for years -- in Britain, India, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Thailand for instance.
They are called “open” because there are no entry requirements, except, generally, for a lower age limit.

Malaysia’s one and only Open University is now 10 years old. Although not as “open” as other open universities yet due to LAN restrictions, OUM has flourished from 753 students in August 2001 to 29,000 students today.

Unlike traditional universities which cater to school leavers, open universities attract working adults who missed out on higher education or just want to top up their education.

Open admission need not mean lower quality. The Open University in the UK, for instance, was ranked fifth amongst all UK universities for teaching quality by the Sunday Times University Guide 2004 -- a ranking higher than those for Oxford and University College London.
When OUM took our first batch in 2001, the number was 753. With staff dedication, our enrolment has grow.

There are now 32 learning centers around Malaysia.
IT infrastructure is up to the level expected and the university goes overseas in line with the government’s goal of making Malaysia a centre for educational excellence.
The normal programmes OUM have are diploma and degrees.
All programmes are accredited with LAN.  Among those accredited are :
Diploma in Management
Bachelor of Management
Bachelor of Business Administration
Bachelor of Information Technology
Bachelor of IT and Management.
Indonesian students, given the chance, would take up
Malaysian degrees without coming here. That saves a lot (of money) for them.
OUM modules -- the ones in Bahasa Melayu -- with some
modification can be used in Indonesia. As for Brunei and Singapore, they have their own arrangements.

Programmes for Indonesia are in BM and a mix of English.

While OUM is a private university, it has the “personality” of a public university. The former VCs of public universities have contributed to that.
OUM’s unique in a sense that it’s owned by 11 public universities. The 11 started a consortium and got a license from the Private Education Department.
Malaysian Government gave financial assistance during the first few years to get started with building and learning centers set up.

It’s unique because it started as a consortium of 11 public universities but operates like any other private university. Since 2005, there’s no more government contribution.
