Nine Rajamangala Universities of Technology nationwide have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to cooperate in the use of digital credit systems to promote life-long learning. The MOU was signed at Songthanapitak Conference Room, Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi (RMUTT), with Dr. Supatra Champathong, Secretary-General of the Office of the Education Council (ONEC), witnessing and giving a special lecture on the topic, “Open Opportunities for Life-long Learning”.
Assistant Professor Dr. Sommai Pivsa-Art, RMUTT President, revealed that, “The significance of education management in eliminating inequality has been discussed domestically and internationally. The fourth Sustainable Development Goal 2030 that determines the direction of global development over the next 15 years, ensures that everyone receives an equal education opportunity and support for life-long learning.”
Rajamangala Universities of Technology have formed a network covering all regions within the country aimed at driving development of educational management using credit systems coupled with Digital Credit Bank System (DCBS) to support operations.
RMUTT is the key player in developing the digital credit system. It forms a platform for cooperation in digital credit system adoption to promote life-long learning for the Rajamangala Universities of Technology network. As such, it will be useful for developing education and spreading the results widely. Consistent with the aims of Rajamangala Universities of Technology, it will also benefit the nation.
The objectives include exchanging information and proposing policies for the development and expansion of the digital credit lending system. To this end, RMUTT has DCBS and other Rajamangala Universities of Technology feed information into the system to support its development. They also provide policy recommendations for the use and expansion of the digital credit system developed by RMUTT.
“The body of nine Rajamangala Universities of Technology will use the expertise to its full potential in performing according to the MOU and in accordance with generally accepted operating standards. These include recruiting personnel with knowledge and expertise to carry out the work, providing information to enable effective analysis, and processing the system for the best benefits that meet the goal of promoting life-long learning.”
Associate Professor Dr. Kiatisak Punlumjeak, RMUTT Assistant to the President, and “The Development of the Digital Credit Bank System to Promote Life-long Learning” research project advisor, added that: “RMUTT has conducted research in the credit system for some time. It was originally named The Alternative Education Management for the Development of Industrial Personnel Project. In 2019 RMUTT taught the credit bank system. This year, the university has opened the system to students in 19 disciplines to make it more generally known. ONEC realises its importance, especially in terms of operations. As a technological university, RMUTT has been assigned the consultancy role for the development of digital systems to promote life-long learning. The project’s output will lead to a digital banking system that can link the collection and transfer of credit between courses of study and between higher education institutions.”
Marking the turning point of the country’s education management starting from the group of nine Rajamangala Universities of Technology. the hope is that it will make a contribution to education management and promoting equal access to quality education for individuals consistent with the intention of providing education and life-long learning.
