The untapped potential of academic video in Pakistan and the broader APAC region is extensive. Of the nearly 200 million people in Pakistan alone, 64 million of them are students attending nearly 200 universities and 3,800 affiliated colleges.
Leading the charge is Iqra University, a private school in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan with four additional campuses in other parts of the city and Islamabad. In October 2017, the university began its $3M digital learning project for state-of-the art smart classrooms – automated and integrated learning spaces complete with leading AV systems and Mediasite for lecture capture and video management.
Iqra University is the first in Pakistan to deploy an automated academic video program. All classes are streamed live to students online via Mediasite on any device and available for review on-demand in the university’s learning management system, Moodle. Plus, using Mediasite’s engaging quizzing and polling features, students can complete examinations online in real-time. The university is currently converting 100 classrooms into these smart rooms, quickly differentiating the school as an innovator that other schools want to copy.
