ADEC leads in education e-services
By  ITP.net Staff Writer Published  October 9, 2011

The Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) is displaying some of its latest information and communication technology (ICT) initiatives for the first time at GITEX Technology Week.

ADEC has worked tirelessly, since its initiation in 2005, to develop and enforce an ICT development plan that caters to its school students in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

ADEC, for the first time, is displaying some of its newly inaugurated applications during the exhibition, including Geographic Information System (GIS), the Electronic Student Information System (eSIS), and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), which assist with school administration, financial functions and daily school record keeping.

“Now that ADEC has proven its international ICT prominence, we are more than ready to showcase some of the latest tailor made ICT solutions, some of which have been programmed, implemented and designed by our own ADEC staff,” says HE Dr Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili, Director General at ADEC.

After being recognised at the GIS awards ceremony in March 2010, as the ‘best GIS implementation for business support’ for their interactive GIS portal which allows ADEC users to find public and private schools based on different criteria, ADEC decided to go a few steps further and include other users such as parents and students, who can now access ADEC’s GIS portal using iPad and iPhone technologies.

ADEC also has an Electronic Student Information System (eSIS), an essential assistant module that can be accessed by teachers, administrators, students and parents.

ADEC has also introduced other E-learning initiatives that allow students to perform on-line tests, examinations and homework, all part of ADEC’s mission to ease the educational structure for all those concerned.

“ADEC looks forward to setting the example for other educational institutes across the Middle East.  We realise that education requires modernisation and institutional change, which can only happen through learning from other successful ICT and educational success stories which we look forward to hearing about during GITEX,” says Dr Al Khaili.
