The increasing importance of IT within higher education was one of the main topics at SunGard’s annual Middle East User Group conference that took place earlier this month in Dubai. “Over the past 15 years, IT resources have contributed greatly in enhancing the quality of academic programs by providing universities with online capabilities for exams, grading and attendance,” said Dr Ayoub Kazim, executive director, Dubai Knowledge Village. “More recently, the last five years has seen the higher education sector in the region expand quite significantly. There is a wide selection of higher education institutions, diversified academic programmes, and progress in attitudes toward investing in IT resources within the region,” he added.
