“Education is one of the most important building blocks in the progress of a Nation.” No doubt education has a great role in the progressing of nations. Today, most of progressing and frontiers nations in the world recognized them just because of their education. Look at the China (one of the most progressing nation in all fields of life), India (best in IT and Social Sciences), Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and Korea etc. They all proved them in the world on the basis of their successful education system (from grass root to higher level) and keen to achieve something. They are successful as they have molded themselves according to the need of changing environment and technology in every field of life. As you know, technology and scientific development has great impact in every field of life that it totally changed the lifestyle. Businesses, hospitals, public agencies, sports, agriculture and so many other institutes are now excessively using the new faces of technology. Invent of computer changed the way of doing work in organizations. They are now using different computerized soft-wares (i.e. ERP systems in businesses) and technological tools to successfully manage their work.

Technological developments also changed the way of obtaining education and learning systems same as it impacted every field of life. Advancement in information technology and telecom sector has provided a plate form of “Virtual Education System” which opened the new doors of learning and enabled so many educational institutes to efficiently and effectively provide their services all over the world which we call today “The Global Village”. Physical boundaries are becoming meaningless now as much as the concept of Virtual Education is prevailing all over the world.
