Dear students,
I welcome you at the website of the Directorate of Overseas Educational Programmes & e-Learning of Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU), one of the mega universities of the world. AIOU is the first Open university in Asia, established in May 1974 with “Education for all” as the motto. AIOU was established with the main objectives of providing world class educational opportunities to masses and to address the demand supply gap of educational provision.The University is striving to provide open and distance learning experience to students seeking education from basic literacy to PhD level. It has numerous programs at different levels serving students living in Pakistan and abroad. AIOU strives to use technology to realize its mission; especial focus has been given to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) usage to extend the university’s already streamlined educational facilities.To quench the knowledge thirst of Pakistani expatriates, the AIOU has established a dedicated directorate for overseas Pakistani students. The mega university has extended its educational facilities to the Pakistanis residing and working in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Overseas Pakistani students can be benefited from AIOU’s prestigious and economical programmes while continuing their jobs and without travel to Pakistani for examinations. The overseas educational portal of AIOU caters the needs of Pakistani expats within affordable cost through distance learning system.ICT based education is the next logical step for providing quality educational services and interactive learning environment for distance educational universities. The e-learning wing of the Directorate is a spearhead of online learning. State of the art Learning Management System (LMS) coupled with advance virtual classroom technology provides the students with classroom like interaction through audio/video, whiteboard sharing, desktop sharing and support for other classroom control tools. AIOU has taken full advantage of the modern techniques of communication to facilitate and support its students all over the world.I wish a very bright future for all of you. I hope that after acquiring education at AIOU, you will become an asset for the country and you will be able to play an important role for the development and prosperity of the people of Pakistan.
