To address the critical need for improving communication with the stakeholders and building awareness about the National Higher Education Standards, quality assurance policies / procedures, financial management, governance and regulatory arrangement, the HEC has taken an initiative to launch education television channel. The initiative will helps in building the image of Higher Education Sector, foster clear perception about programs ad possibilities of HE Sectors presents. The channel is also aimed at providing a platform for  the students , faculty and researchers of  media and mass communication departments of universities in Pakistan to take the full advantage of channel and use their writing, directing, screening, editing and relevant skills to develop diverse contents around higher education activities and offered services by HEC & higher education institutes.

Initial phase

To follow the spirit of Higher Education TV channel and to develop the contents it was advised to opt a “cluster model” by taking  media and mass communication universities on board. The media/mass communication universities representing a cluster will be made responsible for developing contents related not only to their universities but also the universities that are in their vicinity. Since these universities have the built-in production capabilities that includes studios, script writers, producers, directors and technicians. Therefore, providing TV platform to universities would not only helps in showcasing the talent of media and mass communication students/ faculty but also helps in developing a contents for the TV channel.
