Webcasting as a Medium of Live Broadcasting in Campus Webcasting technique is a new technology that was implemented in University of Malaya recently, the technology has been used by the people through out the world as a medium to show video in streaming mode to people in the internet.

In term of costs, it is very cheap and easy to maintain. Webcasting only need the encoder, decoder, video camera, connection to internet and a person to monitor the streaming processes. The best part is everybody in the campus can watch live broadcasting event using their own PC in their offices. 

The Webcasting project was started at the end of year 2005; the first broadcasting on the internet was on January 12, 2006 with QAMU’s event “Urusan Dokumen”.
Universiti Malaya had implemented enterprise-wide antivirus software for personal computers, servers and portable computers throughout the campus in the year 2002. Nevertheless the antivirus software had many weaknesses and constraints. Because of this, in the year 2006, Universiti Malaya had purchased two new antivirus products, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + Anti-Spyware and Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition to replace the existing antivirus software. A total of 9,000 computers were involved in which 4,500 computers were installed with the first product and the other 4,500 computers were installed with the latter. The locations of the computers involved in the exercise were as follows: 

(i) Kampus Utama at Lembah Pantai – 8,500 units
(ii) Kampus Kota at Kuala Lumpur – 300 units
(iii) Nilam Puri at Kelantan – 200 units
Virus threats posed the biggest security risk in Universiti Malaya. To alleviate from the increasing menace of this security threat, PTM had develop a procedure to automatically trace computers which had been infected with virus. This procedure was urgently needed because computer users were ignorant or unaware of dangerous virus infections. The method to trace viruses was by using Network Viruswall.

In year 2006, PTM had installed additional 5 Network Viruswall, amounting to 10 Network Viruswall installed throughout the campus. The equipment was effective in blocking the spread of the viruses from one segment to another segment of the network and to ensure that computers and UM networks were secure. Because a computer infected with viruses had potential to be abused by third party to launch attacks on others. Data and confidential information could be at risk, compromised or exploited. These incidents could result in loss and jeopardize University’s reputation. The following were the locations installed with Network Viruswall.

i) Makmal A, Perpustakaan Utama 
ii) Makmal D, Perpustakaan Utama 
iii) Makmal Komputer Fakulti Sains
iv) Fakulti Bahasa dan Linguistik
v) Jabatan Farmasi, Fakulti Perubatan
vi) Fakulti Pergigian
vii) Institut Pengajian Siswazah
viii) Akademi Pengajian Islam
ix) Bangunan Siswarama, Fakulti Sastera
x) Pusat Asasi Sains

As the results from the “virus tracing“ by Viruswall, lists of computers which had been infected with viruses were sent weekly to Wakil IT in various PTj via letters and emails (uminfo) for clean up purpose. To support activities to trace infected computers, an IP and user database was developed. The database was very usefull in finding the identity of users and computers. Up to the end of December 2006, 44.2% of the infected computers were clean of viruses.
To support ICT services provided, PTM had prepared 8 rules, 4 policies and one guideline on ICT security. All the policies, rules and guidelines could be obtained from the web site: http://ictsecurity.um.edu.my. The following were the list of policies, rules and guideline. 

1. Peraturan Penggunaan Komputer dan Sumber Rangkaian 
2. Peraturan Penggunaan Komputer
3. Peraturan Penggunaan E-Mail

In support of policy development plans related to document security and secrecy, a briefing on Buku Arahan Keselamatan was held on October 12, 2006. The briefing was presented by Mr. P. Terence Selvakumar, Ketua Bahagian Keselamatan Perlindungan ICT, Pejabat Ketua Pegawai Keselamatan Kerajaan Malaysia, Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Putrajaya. Senior offices from UM and heads of PTM attended the briefing. The purpose of the briefing was to provide a better understanding of the ICT security and the contents of Buku Arahan Keselamatan. All because PTM was in the process of developing ICT security policies related to document security based on Buku Arahan Keselamatan published by Pejabat Keselamtan Kerajaan Malaysia.
Convocation Ceremony is a very meaningful event for graduates and their parents. Now, the recorded telecast of the ceremony in DVD format can be owned by graduates who want to keep the DVD as a valued personal collection. 

This DVD Convocation Project was started in 2005 by Pusat Teknologi Maklumat (PTM) to provide the recorded video of the ceremony in DVD format as a good deed and service to UM staffs and students especially for graduates. The recorded video will cover the convocation ceremony based on the sessions of the graduation.

In the DVD pioneer project in 2005, the production of the DVD convocation was done by a vendor while PTM played a role in promotion and sales of the DVD. The experience from the DVD pioneer project gave confidence to PTM to be in charge of all the process in the 2006 DVD Convocation project : from the production of the DVD itself thru the promotion and sales of the DVD. 

The DVD Convocation project which reached its second year wouldn’t be a success without partcipation and cooperation from PTM staff and staff from Bahan Penerbitan Media, Fakulti Bahasa & Linguistik, Universiti Malaya.

Two types of sales approach was introduced: 1) by reservation and 2) by direct sales from PTM booth during the convocation ceremony. The planning, promotion and publicity that was distributed through letters, brochure, banner, poster, bunting and announcement through emails contributed to the success of the DVD Convocation project. 

Total of 1,902 from 2,096 units of the DVD was sold during the 2006 Convocation ceremony. The sales accomplishment of 97.4 percent proved that UM graduates gave full support to this project

b. Proof Of Concept of Symantec for 3 months
   (15/3/2006 - 15/5/2006)

After the proof of concept, Ironport was chosen and implemented by BPPD,PTM on 16/5/2006 to replace existing servers (mailgw dan network box) to handle spam/virus email issues. 
To improve the UMMail performance further, BPPD,PTM bought 4 new application servers, 2 Database servers, 2 storage servers (for staff and student) and 1 mailing list server . The ethernet speed for UMMail system was upgraded from 100Mbps to 1Gbps

On the application part, BAKK PTM also upgraded the UMMail application to the new version of UMMail/PerdanaMail Webcube starting 30/7/2006. The upgrading process include migrating existing 40GB data, migrating user's emel addresses, intergrating with the Integrated Student Information Sistem (SIS) / Financial Information Sistem (FIS) and system testing (by phases) 

The new version of UMMail/PerdanaMail Webcube was officially opened to UM's staff student on 22/1/2007.

The upgrading of the UM Website project was initiated in 10th October 2006. A special web committee was formed consisting of the Dean of FSKTM, Dean of IPS, 3 Deputy VCs', representative of ICR, representatives of PTM and 2 lecturers from FSKTM. The committee was headed by the VC. Motionworks Sdn Bhd was designated as the consultant for the project. Representatives of the faculties and responsibility Centres consisting of the Deputy Deans and officers were also appointed to participate in the information gathering exercises. 

The main objective of the project was to improve on the UM branding especially with regards to the international viewers. Henceforth, taking the objective into consideration, the consultant proposed 3 project implementation phases consisting of : 

1.Phase I:UMWeb (Sales & Marketing)
2.Phase II:UMLife (Internal Site)
3.Phase III:Alumni (UMAlumni)

Initial information uploading becomes total reponsiblity of the designated consultant. PTM' role during this processes is more of information transfer intermediaries. This is expected to continue until all the phases have been completed by the consultant. Information gathering process for phase 1 was completed in early January 2007 . This has contributed to the initial success of launching the new UM Website on the 14th Janury 2007. The project is now in the stage of information gathering for phase 2.
Beside acting as the information intermediaries between the consultant and other UM entity, PTM is currently developing modules to enable seamless integration between the new website and other system such as the HRIS(Lecturers CV) , the UMPortal(telephone directory) and video streaming. Such integration will enable dynamic information from existing system to be published directly on the web with minimum manual intervention.

Research Management Information System (RMIS) was initiated in 2005 after recognising the need to systematically record and manage all facet of information gathered under UM research arm (IPPP).

Phase 1 development covering the area of consultation,patent and exhibition have been completed in 2006. The PTM team involved has started the development of phase 2 which will cover the modules such as Permohonan Penyertaan Pameran Online, Permohonan paten online, Permohonan geran online and Pemantauan projek penyelidik.
UM E-Learning was first introduced to selected lecturers in UM in June 2005 after undergoing phase 1 customizations which include full integration features with existing Student Information System (SIS). Up to November 2006, 322 lecturers from 12 faculties and 4101 students are involve using the system.It is a web based Learning Management application system with the capabilities to manage learning content.

The Phase 2 UM ELearning development project was carried out in 2006. The phase enablke integration processes of the Create Course module and Student Registration function with the SIS.The upgraded version was then officially open to all UM's community (staffs and students) in December 2006.
Postgraduate Diploma in Biosafety Programme is jointly organised by CEBAR, University Malaya together with United Nation Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
