Al-Ahliyya Amman University to deploy e-learning
e-learning system from eLearment to provide virtual learning solution
Jordan's Al-Ahliyya Amman University has signed a co-operation agreement with e-learning solutions provider eLearment, to deploy its technology.
eLearment, a part of Kuwait's KHX group of education and training companies, will provide its interactive multi-media learning solutions to the university. The eLearment e-learning tool allows users to alter content, which will allow the university to continually update its course materials. The system also evaluates the student's proficiency in each subject.
The co-operation agreement was signed by the university's president, Prof. Dr. Sadeq Hamed, and Ashraf Nairoukh, CEO of eLearment.
Prof Dr Hamed said: "This move comes in line with our endeavours to activate the role of the university's Hourani E-Learning Center, the first facility of its kind in the nation, in the processes of teaching and learning in all majors available in the university.
"Our administration is keen to make the best use of the newest virtual learning techniques to take our education programs to the next level. Therefore, we were the first university in the Arab world to adopt eLearment's techniques and solutions whose highly integrated tools offer user-friendly features, have the ability to conduct performance-based assessment, and provide students with relevant details and information that can help them comprehend educational concepts better.
"What distinguishes eLearment's learning systems is their capability to address our vision which focuses on developing our teaching methods while leveraging the e-learning medium to keep our courses up-to-date," he added.
Nairoukh commented: "We welcome this opportunity to work with a big and renowned Jordanian educational establishment of the size of Al-Ahliyya Amman University. Given the fact that the system is uniquely loaded with highly intelligent interactive tools to meet students' needs and requirements, we aspire to make the system a destination of choice for the various schools and universities across the kingdom.
"We devoted our programming capabilities and field expertise to seamlessly incorporate the most recent virtual technologies into existing pedagogical infrastructures within the various educational establishments, especially that our interactive tools and resources are compatible with all e-learning environments available at schools and universities," Nairoukh added.
