The Imperial Institute of Higher Education (IIHE) recently signed up with i-Context (Pvt) Ltd, to deploy a comprehensive Academic Management and Virtual Learning environment, the Virtual Academy®.
Virtual Academy ® is the latest cloud based application offered by i-Context, a fully integrated, centralized administrative and e-Learning platform that unifies services, academic delivery, administrative management, and reporting for the range of private, public, and postsecondary education institutions.
The Imperial Institute of Higher Education (IIHE), is the ONLY institute in Sri Lanka, which is DIRECTLY associated with the University of Wales, UK, to offer degrees in Business, Software Engineering and MBA. Keeping in line with the vision of providing best in class facilities to students, IIHE is now re-located conveniently at a spacious campus near Majestic City. This new development will now further enhance the student experience, with features such as, online student registration, web based payments, re-visiting lectures in the case of students being absent or present at the lecture from a remote location via internet, etc.
Speaking at the event, Anjana Ratnasara, CEO of i-Context stated, “Sri Lanka’s quest is to become a knowledge hub and it is of paramount importance to have skilled human capital available in the country to achieve this objective. Institutions such as the IIHE play an integral and important role in nurturing the skills and talents of our youth, to fulfill the aspirations of the nation.
Therefore we feel privileged to partner with IIHE to provide the Virtual Academy® solution, which will enable them to streamline academic administration, and to enhance the learning experience of their student population using cutting edge ICT advancements, while also helping Sri Lanka as a nation to fulfill its country development goals.”
“We are excited about the capabilities of this system and the transformation that it will bring to the IIHE,” said Dr. Thilak Weerakoon, Chief Executive Officer at IIHE. “In order to provide the best possible learning and administrative environment for the IIHE, we needed a product that is flexible, integrated, and easy to use, with 21st century technology.
I’m confident that, after a comprehensive evaluation, we have selected the right solution which will cater to the present and future needs of IIHE.”
