Spearheading UNIMAS initiative in the area of e-Learning UNIMAS sees e-Learning as a support system to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the university in the effort to breed the best of scholarship.

UNIMAS LMS (Blended Learning)

The E-Learning Unit in the Centre for Applied Learning and Multimedia, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) was formed in February 2002, with the task of spearheading UNIMAS initiative in the area of e-Learning. UNIMAS sees E-Learning as a support system to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in the university in the effort to breed the best of scholarship.

UNIMAS philosophy in using E-Learning is not to replace the lecturer but rather to enhance and improve the teaching-learning experience of both the lecturer and the student. The university also holds on to the blended learning policy. In blended learning, learning solution is created through a mixture of face-to-face and online learning so that the online component becomes a natural extension of the face-to-face learning. Lecturers are expected to give a well-structure introductory lesson in the lecture room and then to provide follow-up materials online. In order to facilitate this, UNIMAS practices a form of e-Learning which combines the use of audio-visual technology in the physical lecture rooms and the use of online learning system that is accessible by authorised users via the campus network.

The Unit has also initiated the use of an online learning management system (LMS), known as eLEAP (e-Learning Enrichment and Advancement Platform), to allow the use of the Internet to facilitate the teaching of a course. This system provides full authority to lecturers of the university to manage and conduct online activities that would enhance the students.
