Study in Qatar

A nation's future

eLearning applications are not limited to schools but are increasingly being used by business professionals to study part-time. 

by  The Edge Staff — 19 March 2013

 A rise in academic digitisation programmes, and the increase of enrolment in online higher education and ready adoption of eLearning in the MENA region have all contributed to it becoming a dynamic leader in the IT market.

eLearning revenues for the Middle East reached US$378 million (QR1.37 billion) in 2011, while the region’s growth rate in eLearning is at 8.2 percent. Revenues are estimated to reach US$560 million (QR2.04 billion) by 2016, according to an Ambient Insight report. The report showcases the growing popularity of eLearning as the preferred avenue for education by both students and teachers alike.

According to 3P Learning, a global online learning company, it is not just students in the MENA region who benefit from the many strengths of eLearning, but teachers as well. The company recently unveiled on of its most popular programmes in Arabic, one that attempts to increase student engagement and improve mathematical knowledge. Apart from being able to control the pace at which students work, it allows teachers to set the relevant curriculum for students, tailor-making a course to suit their needs.

However, it is important to note that eLearning is not limited to schools but is also used in professional programmes. ictQatar for example have developed a national eLearning portal that allows for organisations in the country to offer virtual learning options for both citizens and residents in the country.
