The IMU Learning Resources Department (eLearning, Library, Medical Museum and MDL) with the assistance of the University’s Centre for Lifelong Learning (ICL), hosted the International Learning Resources Festival (iRLF 2022) for 4 days starting from 14 November to 17 November 2022.

With the theme ‘Humanising Technology via Education’ the festival saw the participation of more than 100 participants from several educational institutions and industries. As with previous years, the festival also included the IIInovasi Competition and saw participation from primary schools, secondary schools, matriculation colleges, local and private higher education institutions, and industries.
As we slowly open our doors to allow physical activities on campus, we invited the top 20 innovators from the IIInovasi Competition to showcase their innovations for an opportunity to establish links with each other while fostering friendships. This was held in the Library Collaborative Area on 16 November 2022.
