Abstract

Despite the recent economic slowdown, Malaysia still aspires to move from an industrial to an information economy. Malaysia's ultimate goal is that, by the year 2020 the country will have become a fully developed nation and have created the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) which world class companies can use as a regional hub. One of seven flagship applications created to jumpstart the MSC is that for Smart Schools. With the advent of the information society a new system of education with information technology and multimedia as the enabling forces is needed. This paper describes the Collaborative Courseware Production Model (CCPM) adopted by the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and a commercial firm, Digital Technologies (DTech), in bidding for the Smart School project. Describes the problems faced by the two organizations and how they were overcome. Concludes that this successful collaboration between a business organization and a university can be emulated by other business and academic organizations by leveraging on partnering intelligence or the respective strengths of the organizations.
