The UQU President Crowns the Winners of the E-Learning Award




Today, His Excellency the President of Umm Al-Qura University, Prof. Dr. Abdullah bin Omar Bafail, crowned the faculty members who won the "Umm Al-Qura University E-Learning Award," organized by the Deanship of E-Learning and Distance Education. The crowning event, which was held in the King Abdul-Aziz Support Hall in Al-Abdiyya, was attended by the university vice presidents, college deans, supporting deanships, and faculty members.

At the beginning of the event, an introductory presentation on the nature of the Award and its categories were made to the audience. Then three awards were presented. The first was the "Excellence Award for the Use of E-Learning Systems." This award aims to encourage faculty members to use the e-learning system tools to facilitate their daily tasks, and encourage students to use modern technologies in learning.

The second award was for the "Development of E-Courses." It aims to encourage faculty members to participate in an electronic course and to upload it on the university e-learning portal.

The third award was for "Enriching Content through the Shams Platform." It is designed to encourage faculty members to participate in diversifying open content through the Saudi Resources Network (Shams), which is one of the initiatives of the National Center, in order to create a sustainable path of partnership in design and improvement, and enhance the quality of digital educational content.

Twenty-three male and female faculty members were awarded prizes across the three categories of the competition, receiving cash, certificates, and honorary shields.

The Dean of the Deanship of E-Learning and Distance Education, Dr. Khalid Al-Mutairi, stated that e-learning is one of the key strategies of Saudi Vision 2030 in the move towards e-governance. He also indicated that the deanship seeks to launch the second version of the award. It will maintain its three current categories, and add a special category for students with the aim of motivating them to use the e-learning system.

The President praised the role of the Deanship of E-Learning in facilitating and simplifying educational materials, and its persistent efforts in promoting e-learning and enriching knowledge content in its various fields and sciences. Hopefully, students will enjoy these services in the light of the modern era, which is witnessing great advancements in electronic services and systems.
