Distinguished Speakers,

Distinguished Guests,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good Morning,

In this important occasion, I would like to express my gratitude to Rector of Universitas Negeri Jakarta, Universitas Terbuka, Universitas Mahendradatta dan Head of Kopertis Wilayah VIII for the collaboration and synergy we have made in holding this prestigious world conference of educational technology. The same amount of gratitude also goes to all the keynote and plenary speakers that have given their time and energy to support us. My highest appreciation goes to the committee that have worked hard and done their best for this conference. We would also like to welcome distinguished guests, speakers and all participants to this beautiful Island – the Island of God. Hopefully in this Balinese atmosphere, we all can produce constructive breakthrough in educational technology for the education quality improvement, especially of Indonesia.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Universitas Pendidikan Ganesha (Undhiksa) was formerly known as part of Fakultas Keguruan dan Ilmu Pendidikan (FKIP – Faculty of education) of Universitas Airlangga in 1962. In the same year we joined University of Udayana. A year after that, we became part of IKIP Malang, Singaraja Branch. In 1993 we became an independent institution and changed our name into the STKIP Singaraja. In 2001 STKIP Singaraja then became IKIP Negeri Singaraja. On 11 May 2006, due to the Presidential Decree No. 11/2006, we became Universitas Pendidikan Ganesha.

We do not want our development freeze, as we plan to be the center of excellence in the development of cultured and humanistic education, science, techonology and arts based on Tri Hita Kirana (the three causes of goodness) and to produce high quality of education and non-education with high competing power. Thus, I believe, collaborating with other prominent universities, such as Universitas Negeri Jakarta, Universitas Terbuka and a fast growing university, such as Universitas Mahendradatta, and also Kopertis Wilayah VIII will expand our network and realise our vision to the center of excellence.

Finally, I wish you all have a pleasant conference. May the results give direct influence to the improvement of education quality.

Thank you,

31 July 2016
