Mutah University :: Towards a better educational environment

 A word from the director of the center

Jordan is striving to be at the forefront of the region and the ranks of developed countries towards a transformation towards a knowledge economy, drawing its resolve in this from the lofty royal visions of His Majesty King Abdullah II bin Al Hussein, may God protect him and herders, and from the determination of his national institutions and his loyal sons.

And since universities are one of the main enablers of this transformation, being the place in which to shape the knowledge building, refine students' skills, and equip them for the labor market, it has become imperative for them to move forward in developing their educational environment to provide university education based on the knowledge economy and targeting it at the same time. The knowledge economy in the shadow of the tremendous technological development and the information age cannot be achieved or even looked at without the effective use of information and communication technology, as it has become the enabling environment for building knowledge in our present time. Mu'tah university is responsible for the nation’s generations and their future, and the university’s endeavor to create an appropriate and appropriate educational environment for them in line with the developments that the world is witnessing today, and its keenness to achieve a distinguished future for Mu'tah University through the implementation of high-level academic programs supported by appropriate educational technology, Meeting the needs of the market and the requirements of change imposed by globalization and technological progress in all aspects of life, in addition to focusing on meaningful scientific research and social responsibility for the development of the local community as a true partner in achieving the desired goals. The world is witnessing a qualitative leap in e-learning and distance learning during the crisis caused by the emerging corona virus (Covid-19), which has led to the disruption of movement in all countries of the world, including education at the level of schools and universities; This prompted all parties concerned with the educational process to take various measures that led to this shift, whereby distance learning was used as an alternative to regular (traditional) education despite the weakness of capabilities and infrastructure in institutions that were not prepared for this oppressive circumstance that surprised the whole world. From this standpoint, and since e-learning has become a necessity for universities to fulfill their mission and possible for the continuity of work in them and in all circumstances, it is imperative to go towards establishing a systematic and planned electronic education that supports the university’s vision and needs and on this basis the need to establish a specialized center for e-learning and learning resources at the university Its mission is to advance the realities of e-learning on the various academic, administrative, organizational and infrastructure levels. The idea of ​​establishing such a center reflects the university’s deep belief and conscious awareness of the necessity of a rapid and proactive response to local and global changes and keeping pace with developments in the field of higher education, especially the use of technology in education, and matching it with the needs of the labor market and providing a flexible education style for students and learners.

 

We are very confident that Mu'tah University will achieve what it aspires for through the development of e-learning, which will make the university in the forefront of Jordanian universities in this field, and among the most prestigious international universities.
