KDU University College’s School of Computing and Creative Media head Tan Chin Ike, who is one of the speakers on “The World of IT”, will focus on raising awareness of what game development is all about.

“I will talk about the career prospects in the booming game industry and breaking the perception that it is not suitable,” he said.

He said international companies have set up their branches in Malaysia and were looking for capable talents here.

“Malaysia is growing as a games hub in South-East Asia,” he added.

Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation vice-president of operations Gurpardeep Singh will focus on digital disruption driven by IT.

“What was once considered cutting-edge technology such as online shopping, mobile banking, social networks and many more, are now considered to be normal ways of engaging with the digital world.

“The future will see continuous waves of Digital Disruption driven by information technology.

“It is essential for future talents to know what sort of skills and attributes they require in order to drive these disruptions,” he said.

Taylor’s University School of Computing and IT dean Dr David Asirvatham will speak about the importance of blended learning and the development of e-learning and blended approach in Malaysia.

“Students will be able to access the latest knowledge almost instantly and will learn how to be independent by doing their own research,” he said.

He will also speak on Massive Open Online Courses.
