Since 2014, EC has invested in more than 100 iPads mini to be given free to students and lectures as a learning and teaching tools for an online based learning approach.
According to chief executive officer Sheila Sie, EC has moved from the conventional method of teaching and learning to an unconventional learning approach where the students are experiencing its high tech teaching and learning facilities with Apple’s latest technology and the interactive TV.
“With the integration of Apple’s technology in the curriculum, EC hopes to become the first in Malaysia to fully implement this technology into our curriculum within the next two years,” said Sheila where she added that as of this year the Foundation in Arts programme will be fully using Apple’s apps.
“The lecturers will teach from iPad with iBooks and other educational applications. So the interactive iBooks created will help to increase engagement of students in class,” she said.
“From the feedback of the students, they feel more motivated and they have a different learning experience from this method of learning and teaching. So, learning becomes interesting because the students can study anywhere and they are not confine to the computer lab,” she added.
During the Open Day, visitors were having an interactive and engaging day filled with various activities such as programme previews, personality test and interactive games.
Other than that, visitors also had the chance to participate in hands on workshops which were conducted to help the students to understand what is Quantity Surveying programme about and its prospect.
“We hope to see good responses from the SPM and STPM students and we are hoping to receive about 200 students,” said Sheila.
