Informatics Academy Pte Ltd (IAPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Informatics Education Ltd., operates as a flagship and prominent showcase in Singapore for Informatics group-wide operations. Formerly operating out of Jurong East, the Singapore campus was recently relocated to the bustling downtown Middle Road area of the city.
The new campus in the city also signifies a renewal for the Academy. In addition to building credibility, improving academic excellence, and raising service standards as our competitive advantages, the new campus will reinforce the Group’s DNA positioning tagline, “IT-Plus,” signifying a learning organization centred on teaching and leveraging Information Technology in all aspects of the business.
IAPL’s competitive strategy will focus not only on a revamped physical look and feel, but also in the manner we use technology to reachout to potential and existing students, as well as in the way we teach and administer our programs. To empower smart learners, we will guide our students in acquiring the right learning tools to navigate and access the vast amount of information in today’s knowledge economy. Lifestyle learning will be a key driver in our strategy.
Our approach to teaching and learning goes beyond rote learning and close-book assessments. Our students will use familiar modern day technologies to help them in their acquisition and application of knowledge. Leveraging on technology, webcasting will be made available for some classes so that learning is made available anywhere and at anytime. Regardless of location, a student will be able to log in for a lesson and watch a video of the class streaming ‘live’ on any device. Students who miss lessons that have been webcasted can now download them and catch up at their own pace, place and time.
Plans are also under way to roll out the use of new mobile devices such as iPad tablets for students to store notes and do online research, as well as for lecturers to disseminate learning materials. The revolutionary learning experience in store at this smart campus of the future will seal its position among the forerunning institutions in the region to use technology to enhance the speed and effectiveness of the learning process.
