Ooredoo and the Ministry of Education to launch new e-learning platform in Oman

Ooredoo has recently joined forces with the Ministry of Education to launch a new e-learning platform for the academic year 2020-2021.

The platform will include the latest educational features and tools such as an e-library. User friendly and efficient, it will also ensure students interact easily with teachers, enjoy access to learning material, have their questions and queries answered, all the while keeping track of their progress.

Ian Dench, CEO of Ooredoo said, “We’re very pleased to be signing this agreement with the Ministry of Education, as part of our CSR activities for Oman. Whilst available for some time, e-learning has come to the forefront of requirements in a post COVID-19 society. We have a role to play in Oman’s digital transformation and we hope this new and exciting platform will help students reach their full potential in their educational journey.”

Dr. Nasser Al Abri, Director General of Information Technology at MOE said, “We’d like thank Ooredoo for their continuous support of Oman’s e-learning strategy, especially during this pandemic. The technology provided by Ooredoo will allow us to set up the portal and ensure that students can adjust to a new way of learning. This partnership is a true example of how we can all come together in the fight against COVID, supporting the development and continuity of education.”

A dedicated app has been created and it is available on mobiles and tablets. Additional materials can be uploaded, making it interactive. Teachers will be able to host seminars, present projects and share ideas with students.
