Students, teachers, and the general population are experiencing the need and requirement for education in a drastically different way, as current and emerging technologies are altering the way in which learning and training content is being delivered and received.
Today, education is evolving as a result of the combination of open source technology, the Internet , mobile and multi-faceted technology, virtual learning environments and learning analytic technology in the education sector, with education becoming individualized, customized and more accessible to everyone, said Wemel Cumavoo, co-founder and CEO, LTT Global Communications.

International expert volunteers and local expert volunteers had an opportunity to share and transfer valuable skills and knowledge, which helped to enrich the Malaysian landscape, contributing towards the country’s ambition of being a high-income nation. They received their Certificates of Appreciation from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak during the launching of the Malaysian Social Enterprise Blueprint recently.
