ICASL to introduce new ICT enabled products to its students and members

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka (ICASL) will unveil three top ICT enabled products - the Multimedia Learning Guides (MMLG), the Online Course Management System (OCMS) and the Library System, on January 13. The MMLG and the OCMS were also honoured with national level merit awards late last year, organised by the Information Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka, the Institute said.

The Multimedia Learning Guides (MMLG) is a project to ensure that the Certificate in Accounting and Business – I (CAB – I) level of the Chartered Accountancy qualification will be a more interesting and thorough experience to its students. The new facility will provide complementary study material in the form of Multimedia DVDs along with the conventional Study Packs. Each set of Study Packs will be accompanied by a DVD which will comprise of study material in a multitude of formats such as Text, Illustrations, Animations, Narrations, Video Clips of Lectures, Real Life Video Clips, Audio Clips, Exercises and Quizzes.

The Online Course Management System (OCMS), provides online study facility to CAB I Level students via ICASL website. This facility could also be accessed by non ICASL students. The Institute expect that the OCMS facility will be found helpful for students from rural areas and working students who do not have easy access to tuition classes. Both the MMLG and OCMS have been developed under the patronage of ICTA and the software vendor for these projects is e-Learnware (Pvt) Ltd.
The new ICASL Library System is an online system entrusted with managing the routine library operations such as cataloguing, circulations, reservations, fines and other patron management necessities.

The library system is also equipped with facilities such as online book searching, reservations and payment of fines by patrons. Among the other services offered by the library system is the Integration with RFID card readers, which enables the patrons to use their ICASL ID cards as the library card.
