Ibn Sina Center for E-Learning
Establishment until 2014:
E-learning is a method of education based on modern communication mechanisms such as computer networks and multimedia to deliver as much information as possible at the lowest cost and fastest time. The project was first initiated by the European Union and UNESCO in 2002 and then it was applied in the period (2002-2006) in fourteen countries around the Mediterranean basin through founding fourteen e-Learning centers online and through building a virtual library, quality control system where one thousand members were trained, as well as enabling (140, 000) students to take advantage of online lessons including (1500) blind students. UNESCO’s executive board has endorsed this project in (2008-2013) as one of the most important projects and it recommended launching it in the African continent as an extension of that in the Mediterranean basin, so the universities of Baghdad, Basra and Saladin started their quest in this regard.
Ibn Sina Centre aims for e-Learning are to improve and develop the teaching process at universities using strategies supported with computers and technology information such as (blended learning and distance education).
