The ICT Minister stated that there will be a framework that aims to disseminate smart learning culture among the younger generations to create a knowledge society and transform the educational process to become more interactive, in cooperation with the state concerned authorities and the small and medium local enterprises operating in the field of educational content, digitization and publishing.
In the same context, ElKady has visited Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University (HBMSU), and met with HBMSU President Mansoor Al Awar, where they discussed the future cooperation frameworks to create a smart and electronic learning system that fits the Arab world, including means of academic accreditation for e-learning programs and quality management systems in providing the educational process, and developing digital content.
