Welcome to IMETC 2019

Technological advances have steered the reach of education beyond the norms of traditional classroom. The facets of learning can be delivered and attained at anywhere and anytime. This is more relevant with the students from the Generation-Z whose life is entangled with technology every day. Thus, the potential of technology in education is endless if harnessed systematically.

However, the inclusivity of technology can only be successful if the divide between the urban and rural population can be reduced. Therefore, through IMETC 2019, the creative and innovative use of digital technology can be further explored by educationists, instructional designers, technologists, digital media designers, multimedia developers, and educationists to help bridge these gaps.
