Tutorial on Building Your Own Personal Website

(Sorry for putting this up late..)

Dear All,

The Centre for Medical Education (CtME), with the assistance of the Learning Resources Dept, has scheduled a continuing series of lunchtime educational sessions in support of advancing e-learning and use of digital resources at IMU. The venue will be E-Lab 1, Level 3, Bukit Jalil.

This week's 1 hour power point workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, 18 November 2009, 12.15 -1.15pm and is opened to all IMU staff and students.

The Topic : Building Your Own Personal Website

In this one-hour learning session, we will explore Google Sites, which is a free and easy-to-learn/use tool to build your own personal website. Although, it has limited features, it could be an excellent tool for lecturers to build their own personal homepage.

Here are two simple examples from INCEIF:

Announcements for this week

Dear all,

As you know, SRC 09/10 has already passed it's half-term. As a council we would like to improve ourselves for the benefit of the student body. Since we have another 5 months left we would like it to be the best we can give to you as a council. Therefore it is important that you fill in the SRC Evaluation Form so we can improve for you. Even if you are satisfied by how things are we would like you to fill it in to let us know what we are doing right and what you think we can improve on.

Warmest regards,

2) Dress Code in the Library

Dear all,

As there have been many incidents of theft and outsiders coming into IMU to use our facilities, the SRC and SSD would like for the library to ensure that the students who use the library abide by the dress code and wear their IMU ID tags at all times.

Therefore, starting from the 16th of November (Monday), the librarians will turn away all students who do not comply to the IMU dress code including neck-ties and the IMU ID tag. Students are requested to take note of this matter and to please abide by the new rule for the everyone's safety.

Also, as a few students have inquired, on the 31st of October the library opened 20 minutes later than usual as the staff on-duty could not start her car (incidently, both staff members are housemates and come to work together). The head librarian would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused.



3) Culture, Ideas and Values Program (CIVP)

Dear all,

This is an invitation for a leadership programme. It is a one month programme that portrays all the leaders in Malaysia as their speaker. The fees for the programme is RM 5000. Please let SRC PR Liaison, Lim Pei Jin, know if anyone is interested.


F3 Strategies Berhad organisation is an independent, non-profit international think-tank based in Kuala Lumpur and is primarily involved in research work. Their clients include Malaysian and foreign government ministries and authorities, public and private companies and charitable foundations. Although most of their work is not always visible to the general public, some of their initiatives did become public events. Chief among these was the Global Leadership Forum (GLF) in 2005 and 2006 respectively. In consonant with their objective of sharing knowledge with Malaysians and the world at large, these two events brought thought leaders, industry captains, corporate movers, innovators and futurists, to share their experience, achievements and visions in Kuala Lumpur. Among the luminaries who spoke at both GLFs were Donald Trump, Neil Armstrong, Sir Tim Berners-Lee (creator of world wide web), Edward Eisner (Walt Disney), Shahar Hashemi (founder of Coffee Republic), Aiswarya Rai and Priyanka Chopra (Bollywood to Hollywood stars), Joseph Stiglitz (economic Nobel laureate), Dato' Tony Fernandes (Air Asia), to name a few.

The Leadership Programme

CIVP is yet another pioneering initiative by F3 Strategies Berhad. It is designed to create future Malaysian leaders through one-of-a-kind training programme, incorporating the '9 Intelligences' Programme, promoted by Harvard University's Professor Howard Gardner. CIVP is akin to a "finishing school" to polish their graduating students into well-rounded, world-class human capital.

CIVP is undertaken in conjunction with the
Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and it will be officially launched by the Honourable Minister, YB Dato' Seri Khaled Nordin, on November 14, 2009. The Deputy Prime Minister is expected to become the patron.

It is their pleasure to invite IMU to send their students to this unique training programme. They will allocate 25 places to local private university students and allocation will be treated on first-come-first-serve basis. Total inaugural intake to CIVP is 120 trainees, made up mainly of top students from the public universities.

The organisers are aware that the information they have just given above is sketchy at best. But if they have piqued your interest and should you need further details, they am more than happy to meet you and present CIVP in greater depth at your earliest convenience.

Security Issues Around IMU

Dear All,

Recently we have had issues with outsiders coming into IMU and using student facilities. For the security of the student body outsiders are not allowed to do so. Some have even troubled our students.

Security guards often complain that they are unable to tell the difference between outsiders and students because lots of students come into IMU out of dress code and without their IMU Student IDs. There is also the issue of students being unnecessarily rude and crass with the guards when they are informed that they are not in dress code.

Students must realize that it is for their own safety and well-being that they are to follow the dress code. On a side-note, it is also the expected attire of health professionals.

Therefore it is imperative that all students:
  1. Comply to the Dress Code from 6 AM to 6 PM (even if you are on study break).
  2. Wear their IDs visibly at all times, even after 6 PM.
If you see any suspicious people around at anytime please do email us at imusrc@gmail.com or call us at our extension line 6601.

This is something IMU takes very seriously, and remember - please be vigilant!

Warmest regards,
Zia Shah
