Welcome Message by OUM President/Vice-Chancellor

Welcome to the 2021 International Conference On Education. The ICE 2021 is an initiative by Open University Malaysia (OUM) to assemble researchers and scholars to deliberate on the latest developments in education. The turn of events resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic has led to the inevitable need for Malaysia to embrace digitisation to close the digital divide. This conference provides the opportunity for various higher education providers to discuss and debate about the evolution and digital transformation within the education sector. It will focus on four specific sub-themes: Effective Online Learning, Distributed Online Assessment, Innovative Digital Solutions and New Norms and Emotional Well-Being. My sincere gratitude goes to all participants, paper presenters, honourable keynote speakers and OUM staff for your contributions in ensuring the success of this conference.

Professor Dato’ Dr Mansor Fadzil
President/Vice Chancellor, OUM
