Editor's Note

If time flies faster the longer our chronological age ticks on, then it has really flown by this May 2019 semester where, in anticipation of the Raya celebrations, all key deadlines have been brought forward for the OUM academics labouring behind the scenes. It was in the throes of these compressed times that this latest issue of inspired was birthed. Time is the essence of Issue 7 where it works hand in hand with institutional effort to enhance positive learner experience. This is the topic of our main feature by OUM’s Vice President of Operations and Learner Experience, Puan Kamariah Mohd Noor. Time is also that which OUM bides before officially launching in stages its fully online programme delivery, as highlighted in the irregular interview column, “5 Minutes with the President” of OUM. From all of us here at inspired, and on behalf of the University, we wish all our readers Selamat Hari Raya and Happy Holidays!
