UAE, March 15, 2020 – In line with the UAE’s efforts to implement a ‘Distance Learning’ initiative, the Ministry of Education, in cooperation with Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University (HBMSU), has successfully qualified more than 42,000 affiliates who recently underwent e-training in distance learning within the last 24 hours. The participants completed the ‘Be an online tutor in 24 hours’ course that was launched online to provide necessary training to teaching and academic personnel of various levels about online education processes, including managing and operating online classrooms via the internet and helping acquire the necessary experiences related to how to use modern technology techniques to fully perform their roles. More than 22,000 certificates have been issued, in an unprecedented achievement that serves the goals of the national agenda for UAE Vision 2021 in developing a high-level educational system that ensures the investment of human capital in innovation, leadership and knowledge in line with the requirements of the digital era.
The outstanding results of the initiative can be attributed to the close cooperation between the UAE Ministry of Education and HBMSU to launch two online training courses, with an aim to enhance the distance learning system and ensure its continuity. The initiative also helped improve the management of online learning in order to overcome current and future challenges, while also reinforcing the UAE’s leadership in the transfer of smart learning capabilities, reflecting an educational system that is among the best in the world. Following the successful completion of the first course, the second session, titled ‘Design an Online Course in 24 Hours’ is set to begin this week. The free course in both Arabic and English has been designed to further improve academic professionals’ ability to provide quality distance education in accordance with international best practices.Continue reading “Ministry of Education and Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University qualifies more than 42,000 teachers in UAE & the region”
