HEC to hold video conference on 26th

ISLAMABAD, April 23(Daily Times): The Higher Education Commission (HEC) in collaboration with the US National Research and Education Networking Organisation will hold an interactive videoconference on research and education networks on April 26.

The HEC in a press release on Saturday said that public sector universities and institutes would be able to use the video conferencing for the distant learning. Participants in videoconferences can see and interact with one another through computer-generated content. "This content can be educational resources, presentation materials, or technical drawings," said the statement.

The April 26 conference will be beamed through the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) in association with the World Bank. The meeting will focus on interconnected research and education networks among South Asian countries like Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Bhutan, India, Sri Lanka and others like the US research and education networks.

The first part of the meeting will feature reports from the South Asian countries about the status of inter-university research and education networking infrastructure. The target audience will be researchers, teachers, network managers and those involved in university research networks.

Faculty and technical staff from 18 public sector universities have already been provided with the video conferencing and the remaining 32 universities will soon be part of this pool.
