Virtual University MODE OF EDUCATION

The Virtual University uses a combination of video lectures, reading material, audio/video tutorials and on-line interaction (e-class rooms) for imparting knowledge. However, it follows a very formal assessment and evaluation system in the same fashion as used in any conventional higher education institution (HEI).More than 170 campuses of the University across Pakistan provide its students a great opportunity to participate in academic activitiesAlthough, the University observes the semester system, its students have complete flexibility to study at their own convenience, pace and place.
More than 170 campuses of the University across Pakistan provide its students a great opportunity to participate in academic activities without any extra burden on their pockets as compared with those studying at home. The wide spread of virtual campuses and complete flexibility to study at home jointly support the unique idea of “World Class Education at Your Doorstep” and in a true sense makes it unnecessary for students to relocate or travel to larger cities to obtain higher education.
The University's video lectures are developed by highly qualified faculty members or field experts in a complete digital environment and handcrafted at its own fully equipped recording studios. These lectures are then delivered through University's Learning Management System and its four free to air Television Channels (VTV1-4). Lectures are also made available over the Internet on YouTube, Dailymotion and the Virtual University's Open-Courseware site (http://ocw.vu.edu.pk). Although, the students can watch these video lectures at their own convenience, however the University suggests a “Time Plan” for guidance and better time management for studies during the semester. Students may also obtain the video lectures on DVDs from the University’s online bookshop.
Complete student-teacher interaction and support is provided through the LMS
Complete student-teacher interaction and support is provided through the VULMS while semester examinations are conducted in a formal, proctored environment at designated examination centers throughout the country.

Add caption
Development of Higher Education is a primary condition for the socio-economic development and societal transformation. It builds the critical human capital necessary for research, innovation, growth and development across all sectors of economy. Inclusive access to higher education can thus transform our strong demographic advantage into a peaceful, modern and prosperous society. To fully benefit from the prevailing demographic reality, we need to educate our people in the shortest possible time. However, supply of qualified faculty vis-`a-vis demand is the single largest challenge in accomplishing the task without compromising the quality of education. A practical solution to the problem is the use of modem Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools to deliver education while maintaining high and internationally compatible standards of education. 
Virtual University of Pakistan is the pioneer university to leverage the use of ICT in imparting the best possible education to its students all over the country including the remote areas as well as the Pakistani diaspora overseas. With its extremely flexible mode, Virtual University enables the students to manage their studies at their convenience and offers every opportunity to discover hidden talents.
I feel proud that the Virtual University of Pakistan is playing its due role in the socio-economic uplift of the country and contributing towards building an educated nation. I hope that the University will continue to ensure quality of education and teaching and play an increasingly important role in improving access to Higher Education in the country.
Pakistan Paindabad!
Mamnoon Hussain
President, Islamic Republic of Pakistan
