The e-learning unit handles training and projects related to enhancement and development of e-learning for the university, in line with the requirements of the Ministry of Higher Education’s National e-Learning policy document. The unit also coordinates effort to achieve the Malaysian Education Blueprint for higher education, especially shifts 9, Globalised Online Learning through by identifying and developing MOOCs courses for public consumption. SPeCTRUM is a Moodle based learning management system that is being used in the university since 2012. This system was developed with close cooperation with the Information Technology Centre (PTM) that hosted the system. SPeCTRUM is a fully integrated LMS with student, course and staff data. The training for e-learning use among academic staff includes basic system operational usage and technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK).

Currently, we are working on the development of Microcredentials @UM, via UM's official MOOC platform, FutureLearn.
