ISLAMABAD: A world-class information technology data centre has been set up at the Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) to provide digital-based academic services to the students. The centre is a step forward towards the provision of the academic contents to the students in soft form, instead of the hard copies. According to IT Director Muhammad Ajmal Farooq, the Data Centre would provide a strong base for the introduction of the virtual classroom providing online educational services to the students home and abroad. The centre will have many value-added additions to provide relevant academic data to the students at their door-steps.
