Graduate School of Advanced Technology Management
Graduate School of Advanced Technology Management (GSATM) was established as an international online learning institution by the University Council of Assumption University on April 25, 2002 in order to provide an online learning system of distance education using the Internet as the core interface. In practice this is supplemented by off-line eLearning, M-Learning, AV media, and limited face-to-face interactions. The Master of Science program in Management commenced in 2005 as our first ATM course offer. Subsequently, in 2006, the Master of Science in Information and Communication Technology and Doctor of Philosophy in eLearning Methodology programs were initiated followed by the Master of Science in eLearning Methodology and Graduate Diploma in Teaching Profession programs in the year 2009.
In the year 2012, the name CIDE was replaced with “Graduate School of eLearning (GSeL). And later to match with the online trend, the name again changed to be “Advanced Technology Management”. At present, 5 degree programs are being offered at the GSATM comprising 3 master’s degree programs and 2 doctoral degree programs:• Master of Science in Management • Master of Science in Information Technology and Management • Master of Education in Teaching and Technology • Doctor of Philosophy in eLearning Methodology • Doctor of Philosophy in Teaching and Technology
All courses offered at GSATM are Internet learning based. In order to facilitate quality courseware and Learning Management System (LMS), GSATM adopted the open source software “MOODLE” as its main LMS engine. The GSATM has customized the basic LMS by adding features to enable viewing of video lectures online using video streaming. The customized LMS is called SCIT Plus.
