Al Jazeera Children's Channel launches “Taalam.TV” - the Arab World’s first VOD educational portal
Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missned, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education Science and Community Development (QF), Al Jazeera Children's Channel (JCC) launched "Taalam.TV"- the first Arabic Video On Demand (VOD) educational portal for schools and educators.
Building on its mission to enrich children’s lives with quality programming and multimedia content, Al Jazeera Children’s Channel established “Taalam.TV”- an integrated learning website that constitutes an educational complementary tool for teachers and students in school and at home.
“Taalam.TV” (which means “Learn.TV”) brings to the classroom a rich database of educational material and videos extracted from JCC programs content to make teaching more stimulating and engaging allowing students to store, process and recall information more rapidly.
Commenting on this new milestone, Mahmoud Bouneb, the Executive General Manager for Al Jazeera Children’s Channel asserted: “I am proud and happy with this new achievement that answers to both QF and JCC’s mission to empower the Arab children and enhance their personal capabilities and cognitive abilities by opening up new knowledge horizons and introducing modern learning tools. Our research has revealed that children pay a remarkable amount of attention to audio-visual presentations. With ‘Taalam.TV’, primary and elementary school teachers can now bring lessons to life by using a wide array of short educational videos, fact sheets, graphics and a rich image library intended to help students achieve a greater understanding of the different subjects presented in class.”
“Taalam.TV is an ongoing collaborative project between QF, JCC and the Arab educational communities with the aim of providing our children, the citizens of tomorrow, a better education. I would encourage every teacher and school to explore the portal, evaluate the audio-visual educational content, and provide us with their comments and input.” Bouneb added.
Furthermore, “Taalam.TV” offers teachers a sturdy platform to exchange experiences, share information and easily communicate with others in the field across the Arab World.
"Taalam.TV" portal was fully developed by Al Jazeera Children's Channel website and multimedia team in collaboration with a group of Arab teachers and experts who verified the educational information of the videos and composed the supplementary tools such as fact sheets and sample exercises.
