Talal Abu-Ghazaleh and Al Quds College
HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, president of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University (TAGIUNI) tackled E-learning and the future of education at a special session at Al Quds College.
"The Tsunami of information technology is a threat to the conventional methods of teaching around the world and you have to prepare for it by embracing knowledge. Soon countries will recognize only digital education because the information technology revolution is the largest," he added.
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh stated that TAGIUNI, the gateway to the world’s best education, partners with leading international education institutions to deliver accredited, world-class education to a global student body, "Access to elite, world-class education, however, remains exclusive and unaffordable to the majority of students around the globe. We are in a position to do something about it. Access to world-class education is an inevitability whose time has come."
He added, "Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University is our endeavor to democratize education, promote global citizenship, and empower citizens who have been disenfranchised by the technological revolution. Our mission is to make accredited educational programs accessible to everyone, everywhere. Instead of competing with institutions, we are a global educational alliance — collaborating with elite universities to deliver their education, online, to achieve our mission."
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh pointed out that failure is not the end and that it is an opportunity to repeat what you did in a better way.
The event was attended by a host of students and faculty members headed by its dean Prof. Mohammed Al Majali who presented an Honorary Shield to HE Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh.
