Dubai: The International Institute of Online Education (IIOE) today announced the launch of the Arabic version of its website in collaboration with its business partner, Wisdom House Cultural Industry Group Co., Ltd. – China. The aim of the new website is to increase the audience for distance education and further promote the development of information and communication technology (ICT) capacities of teachers in Arabic-speaking regions. It is also a response to the expectations and needs of partner universities in the Arab world and regional offices of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Since its launch, the IIOE has introduced three language versions including Chinese, English and French. Arabic is the official language of 18 Arab countries. The number of native speakers of Arabic exceeds 260 million and the number of users of the language worldwide exceeds 440 million. As a professional service platform for the Arabic language in the world, Wisdom House Cultural Industry Group Co., Ltd., provides a full range of services and technical support for the Arabic version of the IIOE website, in drawing on its advantages of language, talent, and resources.
The Arabic website is the fourth language version of the IIOE, which aims to offer further distance education solutions for Arabic speaking regions and to help improve the ICT capacities of teachers in higher education institutions. In addition, it sets up a blended learning and e-learning training platform to increase the chances of students to get high quality education. At the same time, the website will be more in tune with the search habits of users in Arabic speaking regions; making the IIOE even easier to use.
The website will have four key sections: âHomeâ, âCoursesâ, âTrainingâ and âNetworkâ. To coincide with the launch of the Arabic website, 5 courses will be introduced including ‘Mind Mapping and Application’, ‘Education Data Collection’ and more, in addition to 5 other high quality courses to improve the skills of Arabic language teachers, as well as the IIOE Big Data training certificate (general level) in Arabic. By completing the required training content, you will be eligible to apply for a training certificate issued by UNESCO.
Courses to improve Arabic teachers
The mission of the IIOE remains to help partner institutions in developing countries to build their capacities and increase the opportunities for institutional learners to obtain high quality higher education. As of November 2021, the IIOE had signed 20 partner colleges and universities in Asia and Africa, authorizing 8,162 students, covering 135 countries and regions. With the promotion of the Arabic version of the website, the IIOE will provide distance learning resources and services to users in more languages. The IIOE Arabic version website will continue to be dedicated to helping institutions in Arabic-speaking regions improve their capacity and environment for delivering online and blended education, creating an e-blended learning ecosystem and achieving modernization of colleges and universities.
