Edutech rolls out major elearning project for KKU
King Khalid University in Saudi Arabia to bring elearning to over 70,000 students
Edutech has deployed an extensive elearning project for King Khalid University (KKU) in Saudi Arabia, which will serve over 70,000 students.
The integrated elearning solution will give KKU improved efficiency and co-ordination of activities, with a unified view of student, faculty, and course and enrolment data; well accurate tracking and reporting for enhanced performance and consistent standards of teaching through a centralised leading environment
The project will also allow the University to extend its distance learning programs, by capturing and broadcasting classroom sessions to students across all their campuses and in remote locations, while giving students ‘anytime anywhere' access to course work and data.
Dr Abdullah Alwalidi, Director of e-learning Center, King Khalid University commented: "Our history as an institution formed through the merger of two universities and numerous community colleges with multiple campuses has made standardising learning methodologies and processes a true challenge. As one of the biggest centres of learning in the Kingdom, we have made a decision to adopt eLearning as a tool to offer quality education, better student and faculty experience, and streamlined teaching and learning processes. This prompted us to partner with Edutech, who have risen up to the challenge by implementing a whole gamut of eLearning solutions, which are now a part of the total learning experience at the university."
The wide-ranging solution includes comprehensive learning management system, virtual classrooms, collaboration tools, content authoring and capturing tools, and digital repository systems. Edutech also provided training for over 200 staff and faculty to ensure a smooth transition to elearning.
"We are very proud of this implementation that we have rolled out for King Khalid University, as it successfully addressed the University's needs and has placed them in a position where they can effectively create and sustain an eLearning culture within their entire academic community," said ASF Karim, CEO, Edutech.
"We have undertaken this multi-phased initiative based on our ‘Certified Rapid Implementation and Support Program' methodology to ensure fast implementation and quicker user adoption at a lower cost, which has been very much appreciated by our client. This extensive project has been another accomplishment in our growing portfolio of successful eLearning implementations within the region's top educational institutions," he added.
