IT University certificates distribution ceremony at Arfa Software Park

Lahore:May 29: Information Technology University (ITU) will organise its first edX certificates distribution ceremony at Arfa Software Technology Park here on Monday (today). In February this year, ITU had signed an MoU with global education platform edX, a nonprofit online learning destination founded by Harvard and MIT, to integrate edX courses in the existing ITU degree programmes. Dr Umar Saif, ITU Vice-Chancellor will award certificates among the successful students. The successful collaboration between ITU and edX is leading to the formation of the first “digital university” in Pakistan. The collaboration with edX has enabled Pakistani students to take courses from top universities in the world in their classrooms at ITU under the supervision of the ITU faculty members. An ITU spokesperson said this is the first of its kind partnership of edX with any university in which online courses on edX are integrated into classrooms and supervised exams. Students earn a course completion certificate from a university such as MIT or Harvard and course credits from ITU. Currently ITU’s first year Electrical Engineering students were enrolled into the Circuits and Electronics course at MIT through this partnership.The news.
