UNIMAS hopes to contribute towards the enhancement of quality of higher education through a selection of online courses.
UNIMAS is a Malaysian public university offering academic programs at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The university is committed to enhance the teaching and learning environment in order to provide meaningful and enriching learning experiences for students. In pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning, UNIMAS continuously looks for ways to leverage on technological innovations for further improving the quality of teaching and learning while simultaneously sharing its courses and materials with fellow academics and students within and outside Malaysia. In tandem with the Ministry of Higher Education, UNIMAS at present encourages its academic staff to participate in OpenCourseWare@UNIMAS.
At this initial stage UNIMAS supports OCW by offering regular professional development programmes for its staff and provides some developmental support in the preparation of OCW course materials. More support mechanisms are expected to be put in place to enhance UNIMAS involvement in OCW in the future. You may visit OpenCourseWare@UNIMAS here
