Our research is focused on modularization, learning objects, podcasting, interactive simulation and game-based learning technologies for future implementation to ensure that our faculty members have access to the latest technologies.

UMT-CONNECTED works with relevant interest groups to create as well as implement policies and procedures pertaining to on-campus, video-based, technology-enhanced, hybrid, and online courses. UMT-CONNECTED aims to ensure that UMT is compliant with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and international standards for administering electronically-delivered courses, as applicable.

UMT-CONNECTED is committed to the advancement of exciting and engaging digital learning environments, where learners can actively interact with high-quality content, distinguished faculty, as well as renowned industry leaders. The UMT-CONNECTED team prepares technologically-enhanced instructional materials through detailed conversations with faculty, departments across campus, administrators, researchers, industry experts, and students. In short, we design content, experiences and interactions that keep participants ahead of the curve, in the fast and globally-competitive world.

In collaboration with the academic departments, UMT-CONNECTED will help produce and disseminate innovative research in the field of educational technology to augment teaching and learning. UMT-CONNECTED will design new pedagogies based on the shift in educational paradigm to cater to the current and future needs of the world in general and Pakistan in particular.
