Figures from May this year show that in Taiwan close to 17 million people (total population: 23 million) now regularly use the internet. Given the prominence of the internet in Taiwan, digital learning has become the logical next step in the field of education. To capitalize on this future trend, in the 2010-2011 academic year Tamkang University established a three-way digital learning program with two other local universities that offered students the option to learn online. It was called the Intercollegiate Digital Learning Program. Participating universities included Aletheia University and St. John’s University, both situated in the local Danshui district, and courses offered included ‘Tourist Travel Services’, ‘Creative Comic Book Animation’, and ‘Chinese Language Teaching’.

The courses were a great success. And so, before the first semester of the 2011-12 academic year (the current semester), TKU received the Ministry of Education’s approval to continue. The magnitude of the program has now grown to include four new partner universities: Chung Yuan Christian University, Shih Chien University, Yuanpei University, and Tungnan University.

Speaking at today’s (Sept 7) joint program signing ceremony, the Director of the Computer Center of M.O.E., Jung-Kuei Ho, said that in the first round of digital learning courses, Tamkang University’s vast experience in online course provision helped participating universities to develop the skills needed to offer internet based degree programs. During the ceremony, the President of TKU, Dr. Flora Chia-I Chang, stated Tamkang’s current objectives: to develop long-distance education both locally and internationally, to set up joint online credit-awarding courses and degree programs, and to build an internet-based Chinese language academy that spans the entire globe.
