Expanded Meeting for E-Learning
Since 2009, the Libyan International University has adopted the strategic direction of E-learning and began establishing the E-learning platform “Moodle.” The university’s efforts have continued in developing E-learning services in the colleges. The significant positive impact of this approach became evident during the COVID-19 pandemic. This approach played a major role in the university’s continuity of education and curriculum, unaffected by the negative circumstances resulting from the pandemic. The entire university transitioned smoothly to distance E-learning due to the existing infrastructure and the knowledge of faculty members and administrative staff in dealing with E-learning.
Since then, the importance of this approach has solidified, receiving full support from the university president and the university council. An E-learning office was established under the direct supervision of the university’s vice president for learning affairs, with coordinators in the colleges. In line with the aforementioned, a meeting was held on Thursday, February 9, 2024, to follow up on this approach, monitor and evaluate procedures, and develop the strategic direction of E-learning while ensuring its continuous support.
Due to the variation in the use of this approach among colleges and programs, the meeting consisted of informative presentations to clarify the current status of E-learning in each college. The aim was to transfer experiences from some colleges and programs to others, so that all programs and colleges within the university maintain the same level of efficiency and performance.
The presentations were delivered in the presence of the university president, vice president for learning affairs, deans, program directors, department heads, faculty members, and e-learning coordinators. The order of presentations was as follows: School of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Engineering and Technology, College of Pharmacy, and College of Applied Medical Sciences. The focus of the presentations was on the overall utilization of the E-environment in the university, with particular emphasis on E-learning.
