The ministry was also working on a national digital learning platform that was in the works to provide opportunities for more individuals to access learning while empowering lifelong learning, she added. She also said programmes such as the Higher Education Ministry (MoHE) Innovative Digital Educators; MoHE MicroCredential Based Learning; MoHE Immersive Learning Spaces and Hyflex Learning should be implemented. Noraini added that the implementation of the digitisation agenda would require a lot of costs and that they could not rely solely on the government for funding. "We need to creatively find space and opportunities for collaboration with other parties that can help the ministry accelerate the digitisation agenda," she said while welcoming corporate bodies to form partnerships with the ministry. She also suggested a special committee chaired by the ministry’s secretary-general Datuk Seri Abdul Razak Jaafar be formed to monitor the implementation of all digitisation agendas. During her new year address, Noraini also launched the Higher Education Welfare Blueprint, known as Sejahtera IPT. The blueprint is the ministry’s medium-term plan, containing seven strategies, to continue the momentum of higher education excellence after it was affected by the pandemic. Among the strategies were enhancing a safe campus ecosystem, enhancing graduate marketability, strengthening strategic collaboration networks, driving community wellbeing and realising institutional excellence.
