University encourages IT use


            HOPING TO IMPROVE IT literacy amongst students, Narong Chavasint, the president of North – Chiang Mai University, has decided to spend Bt80 million to establish modern computer infrastructure to support all 1000 students, teachers and staff.


              Narong hopes to make his university, on 100 rai in Hang Dong district, a prominent electronic university by laying down information technology infrastructure to establish the Total Campis Management Solution (TCMS) to build on the concept of education on demand.


             TCMS integrates a technology strategy and a management philosophy that universities can use to improve education and university operations. The system includes integrated plug – and – play software modules and bundled information management, and offers a Web – based administrative software suite that integrates each segment of the university – student, administrators and faculties, and family and friends.


           Under Narong’s “e- university concept”, e – Workplace, data centre, intelligent learning and a learning centre are to be established. The  e – Workplace is a knowledge – based centre which will provide infrastructure to students, allowing them to access the Internet. The data centre is designed to support IT operations, storage and server consolidation as well as security and management systems, while the intelligent learning centre provides a modern classroom to improve student literacy by allowing them to utilise ICT.


          He said the learning centre not only provides an education system for students, but also people from outside. The system enables students to access information and practice electronic learning from the university at anytime and anywhere. In the future, Narong said, the university would develop a new system to allow the university to send all examination results to students who have mobile phones.
