MITx will be interactive online course that will:

  • organize and present course material to enable students to learn at their own pace

  • I would like to add one thing that i have come into my knowledge.

    I have Zong last 1.5 years and yesterday Zong detect itself Pk. 6 Rupees on my balance due to not defined the reason.

    I just talk to Support so the guy disconnect my call and said you will sent to anywhere the SMS and the no is 928080 but i am a professional network & security person in a very large organization so i don’t have any time to send such types of SMS to anywhere or any TV program.

    Even I have checked my call and sms history I didn’t find anything. So can anybody tell me what is this no. 928080?

    6 Rupees is not too much but itself detecting is not the right way.

    Note: Admin allow this comments on your website. I will put this also on your another post.
