HBMeU at Telecoms World Middle East 2013
Hamdan Bin Mohammed e-University (HBMeU)’s Cloud Campus initiative, the first-ever social online learning platform in the region, which embodies the Smart Learning approach, has generated an overwhelming response from participants at the recently concluded Telecoms World Middle East trade show which was held at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai.
During Telecoms World Middle East 2013, Serine El Salhat, HBMeU’s Assistant Chancellor for International Cooperation, delivered a presentation on “Taking learning to the next level through Cloud Campus initiative” which promotes a culture of lifelong learning through social media channels. The university also set up a booth in the exhibition area to showcase its innovative e-learning program.
Cloud Campus is a ground-breaking yet affordable social online learning program which delivers e-learning services to all segments of society via personal accounts on Google+, LinkedIn and Facebook. It is the result of a strategic partnership with Global Learning S.A.R.L., a specialist in modern learning methods and techniques. Participants have access to over 1,600 interactive online lessons in the fields of mathematics, sciences and IT for school students from first to twelfth grade, as well as business skill development for adults via 180 certified programs in Leadership, Communication, Marketing and Islamic Banking, among many others. Over 600 online lessons in the English language for all age groups are provided as well. Program benefits include Academic Support, Certification, and Multi-Screen Access.
Serine El Salhat said: “The Cloud Campus, which is in line with the directions of Dr. Mansoor Al Awar, Chancellor of HBMeU, embodies HBMeU’s commitment to offer Smart Learning and providing education for everyone in adherence with the highest standards of comprehensiveness, quality and credibility in order to prepare a globally-competitive generation which is able to support economic and social development in the region. The university is keen to come up with innovative methods to contribute towards shaping the future of education and promoting lifelong learning. The Telecoms World Middle East 2013 was an ideal platform for showcasing our e-learning program and what it means for the future of IT-empowered learning in the Middle East and around the world.”
