'AIOU's tutors, students to receive computers at low prices'

ISLAMABAD, Jan 12, 2008: The Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) has planned to provide computers to its tutors and students at low prices, as part of efforts to improve its distant learning facility, said Vice Chancellor Mahmoodul Hassan Butt.

In an interview on Friday, he said the university had drawn up a contract with Intel Corporation to deliver computers to the university's tutors and students at affordable prices. The move, the VC said, would usher in silent revolution in the university's distant learning facility, weaving a strong network between the university and its beneficiaries in distant places of the country.

Replying to a question, he said the university had hired about 25,000 tutors for one semester while pursuing an effective criteria, in addition to a growing number of distant learners. He said that the university was taking concrete steps to end the practice of plagiarism among students, whose number was significant enough to ensure quality workforce for national development.

The VC informed that last year, the university's competent team found what he described a 'significant' number of students involved in plagiarism when they cross-checked their assignment of only one subject.

"Plagiarism is like a termite, eating up creativity within students and the number of addicts to such practice was significant, almost 60 percent, I tell you, as intake in just one semester is 650,000", the VC observed. To discourage the practice, the VC said the assignments of such students had been rejected and were sent back with an admission cancellation notice.

Moreover, he said directives had been issued to the concerned university's inspection teams to accelerate the frequency of their surprise visits to examination centres to effectively tackle the issue of unfair means.

A university did not mean to produce degrees and disseminate among students just knowledge, rather it created knowledge by encouraging its students to conduct research, the VC remarked.

"Unless a child is given proper education, society cannot evolve into a prosperous place of living and this can easily be substantiated through the annals of history", he said. Answering to another question, the VC said that he was appointed to the post in line with the policy of the HEC and he would continue serving the nation.

Open University appoints first Tenure Track Professor
Allama Iqbal Open University has appointed Professor Dr. Muhammad Kaleem Tahir in the Department of Chemistry as the first Tenure Track Professor in accordance with HEC prescribed criteria.

Allama Iqbal Open University has introduced the new Higher Education Commission (HEC) prescribed criteria for the first time with this appointment.

Dr. Kaleem started his Professional Career in 1973. He did his Doctorate in Chemistry from Stockholm University and Post Doctorate from Harvard University.

For the appointment on the Tenure Track System, Technical Review Committee evaluated the research. Selection panel consisted of three National and International experts. On the recommendation of the experts, selection board of the University has approved the appointment of Dr. Kaleem Tahir as Tenure Track Professor.

The Tenure Track System is the highest salary system to University Professors in Pakistan ranging from 100 to 300 thousand rupees per month.

AIOU has already advertised 34 vacant posts of Professors under the Tenure Track System. APP
