We have set some specific motto of IT club. For this reason we are concentrating in two different areas, which are described below:
Updating with IT related topic:
We always keep in mind that the present era is closely related with the efficiency in using electronic device related to ICT. It focuses on updating people on troubleshooting or news related with online applications and devices like computers, mobile, gadgets and so on. Two groups of people, the research group and web manager group will be working very closely to updating the IT Google site. At present the site is open to only IT club members and eventually we will work on establishing an IT Blog site which will be open to all AUW students. We believe in innovation and modernization.
Learning to use different software or different applications:
IT club is trying to full fill the demand of society. At present, using softwares like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator or different application like Google or Moodle are editions to one’s quality in different fields. Therefore, our IT club is trying to arrange workshops for these different softwares. For this purpose we have one group called technical group who are working towards the era of technology. Eventually, IT club will move on to online softwares.
IT club knows that they have to work with different limitations, still it hopes for the best for the future.
