Dear Learners,


“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.” –Steve Jobs


It has always been our desire to provide you with resources that are enjoyable and engaging. This is why we constantly look out for fresh new ways to deliver quality learning materials to everyone. Only a year ago we launched the OUM App Store. Now, we are already embarking on something else.


I am proud to announce that OUM, in collaboration with Apple, is now offering courses on iTunes U. This is part of our continuing efforts towards having more open courses for distance learners. Now, learners and academics have another platform where they can easily upload and download learning materials anytime, anywhere.


As the legendary Mr Jobs once said, “everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.” Being the first university in Malaysia to offer courses on iTunes U, we are leading the way in open and distance education. I hope that you will get on board with us on this wonderful journey.
