MOOCs can also help raise the bar for education in Pakistan if they are made part of the university curriculum, states Dr Javed Leghari, also a former HEC chairman, in his opinion piece. Students should be registered for MOOC credit courses, classes should be arranged in a traditional classroom environment under tutor supervision and proctored exams and independendent quizzes administered by the university should be conducted in addition to the MOOC assessment. Currently though, Pakistanis have little choice when it comes to participating in MOOCs since many rely on video lectures on YouTube which is still completely banned in Pakistan.

“Stanford in Pakistan”

At present the PM Youth Skills Development Program is being handled by the National Vocational & Technical Training Commission of Pakistan (NAVTTC). Youth who apply, and are accepted into the skills development program, are placed in NAVTTC institutes around Pakistan. PM Youth Program pays 30,000 – 35,000 PKR per every 6 month course to NAVTTC for every student enrolled through the Skills Development Program. This is great and many of the students learn and benefit greatly from taking coursework from local technical institutes. Wouldn’t it be great if the Skills Development Program also provide the same tuition reimbursement for students to take certificates from Institutions like Stanford and Wharton? The costs would remain the same as for local courses but students across Pakistan can benefit from learning technology and engineering skills as well as earning a prestigious certificate from some of the best educational institutes around the world.
