IGNOU-Pakistan’s Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) to Collaborate

The Indira Gandhi National Open University (Ignou) and Pakistan’s Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) have decided to constitute a task force of faculty members from both the universities, to chalk out a comprehensive scheme of collaboration between the two universities.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) could be signed soon, said Dr Nazir A Sangi, vice chancellor, AIOU, Islamabad, who visited Ignou campus and Professor Gopinath Pradhan, vice chancellor of Ignou. The idea will be to use Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Applications in the open learning system, and cater to the needs of the students in the rural areas and in unprivileged areas.

The Collaboration between the two universities will begin with faculty and student exchange programmes.
