Virtual Learning Environment at IREX Conference
Dr. Oday Ahmed of the University of Technology in Baghdad made a wonderful presentation on the “Development of Virtual Learning Environment” to the IREX conference that was held in Baghdad between 26 to 28 of September, 2016. Dr. Oday kindly mentioned Centre/SIS, our integration with Moodle, Mahara and OpenMeetings as the heart of his successful efforts.
IREX is a nonprofit organization that builds a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world by empowering youth, cultivating leaders, strengthening institutions, and extending access to quality education and information. IREX also broadens access to quality education and information by strengthening educational institutions and educators, supporting independent media, and expanding access to information and information technology.
Dr. Ken Holland, Professor of Political Science and Executive Director of the Center for International Development at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, USA, also attended. Ball State’s Center for International Development (CID) has a mission to leverage the skills, expertise and creativity of Ball State University and partners to promote social, educational, political and economic advancement worldwide, particularly in less developed countries. Dr. Holland was the key coordinator in this project, and we thank him for his great efforts!
It’s a pleasure to be a part of such a innovative and successful virtual learning environment project. We look forward to working with the other universities that have already contacted Dr. Oday.
