McKee of Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group on august 2008, they have concluded that, “In the 21st century, technology will play an increasing role in higher education. Institutions will adopt innovative solutions that will change the way students learn, communicate, produce, collaborate, and study both on and off campus—solutions that will also improve interactions among faculty, staff, and students”.

This is actually true. Online teaching curriculum has been a trend, today. Many students in different countries took up this kind of teaching curriculum especially those who take degree in Master’s and doctoral courses; and students who search for time convenience.
