An upgrade on the iOBE software to cater for the iCGPA Initiative of the Ministry of Higher Education has been recently presented at the inaugural iCGPA International Conference in Kuala Lumpur on 17 July 2017.

Our work, titled Implementing iCGPA: Automating Computation with iOBE, was presented at the conference as an academic paper and a poster and selected as the overall winner at the conference. Details about this award are described in this news article. More than 70 papers were presented at the conference.

The conference was officiated with a keynote address by the Minister of Higher Education Malaysia, Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh, attended by many key university officers (VCs, DVCs, Deans) and academics from Malaysian and foreign institutions.

USM sent a large contingent of 46 senior officers to the conference, demonstrating our commitment and alignment towards the Outcome Based Education and the iCGPA Initiative as championed by the Ministry of Higher Education. This team consisted of mostly deans and deputy deans from various schools, lead by Prof. Ahmad Farhan Mohd Sadullah, USM's Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic and International).
