SINGAPORE, June 19 (Bernama) -- A learning method on the information
communication technology (ICT) system suitable for all ages and levels of
society needs to be created to complement the government''s efforts in
encouraging use of ICT among the public in Malaysia.
Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said
the first phase involving the distribution of devices such as netbooks and
providing infrastructure had been successfully implemented in stages nationwide.
"In this regard, the time has come for the relevant parties like the Malaysian
Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to draw up a learning module for
ICT which can be easily understood and fully benefit the people, especially
those in the rural areas.
"So, the important thing now is to get the rural folk to change their attitude
and to learn even in old age about computers, how to use the Internet and
broadband, and how to benefit from these facilities."
Rais said this to reporters after attending the ICT Ministerial Meeting and
visiting the CommunicAsia 2012 pavilions at the Marina Bay Sands Exhibition
Centre with a Malaysian delegation, here, today.
