Technology in transforming education

We are living in a world of information technology where education is increasingly being dependent on the use of computer and internet. It has now been a prime responsibility of the university to equip its students with proper technical knowledge so that they can survive and secure respectable place in society.

In the backdrop of rapid spread of one-to-one computing globally, the university is looking for additional ways to influence positively students' learning process. There are two main ways to do so: first, offering them laptops to be used on the campus only, and secondly, allowing them to take the devices at home for personal use.

Considering the present situation, DIU is distributing laptops among students to use on personal basis and thus help them to face the challenges of a globalized world.

Why laptops for student?

The simplest answer is: technology for transferring education!
Moreover, laptop and internet has become a day-to-day instrument for every student who really wants to be global. We are committed to preparing them for the 21st century and to adapt them to the latest ICT friendly education which will develop their knowledge, skills and abilities to fit globally.

Laptop with internet will facilitate students to get online resources instantly whenever they need from wherever they live. Yes. WIFI will be available around DIU campus for maximizing use of technology.

How laptops can be utilized for academic affairs?

  • For checking results, and academic calendar and so on.
  • For checking the financial transactions and semester performance (by both students and parents)
  • For accessing DIU online library
  • For searching learning resources, career tips, job related training and offers etc.
  • For attending online classes and exams with DIU and others. (Note: DIU is on the way for offering few courses soon.)
