Today is the first day of ASLI auto conference 2013

 I have attended the last two ASLI auto conferences.
This year, I have no budget!
Many thanks to Kenanga Simon, who was very helpful during the whole conference, as was the whole ASLI team.

The keynote speaker, ex PM, Dr. Mahathir was and is the Keynote speaker.
Here is a picture of me shaking his hand at the 2010 event.

I presented with the ex CEO of Proton Tengku (Prince) Mahaleel, and Dr. Mahathir's son, Datuk Mokhzani.

I'm still annoying some of the people in these pictures regarding my dream project...
Hopefully, my patience will be rewarded!
Here is a Bloomberg video featuring Datuk Mokhzani. I have to say, he was polite, but showed little real interest in me or my proposal.

  • University of Bath
  • University of Birmingham
  • University of Bristol
  • Cardiff University
  • University of East Anglia
  • The University of Edinburgh
  • University of Exeter
  • University of Glasgow
  • King's College London
  • Lancaster University
  • University of Leeds

  • The Open University
  • Queen's University, Belfast
  • University of Reading

Interestingly 3 of these Universities have physical University campuses in Malaysia
Monash, Warwick and Nottingham have large campuses in the KL area.

Online learning is obviously growing, as the technology required to support it becomes more and more robust.

These Universities are obviously embracing the future.

Good luck to them!
