The crisis associated with the wide-spread of the Corona virus in Jordan, and the rest of the world, demands that Jordanians act swiftly and responsibly in coming up with solutions to solve imminent threats and breakdown of systems vital to life and wellbeing... Among the most important issues is the continuation of the higher education system during the crisis in order to enable the students to continue to learn or teach themselves through using digital technologies.
As a response to the urgent request of HRH Prince El Hassan the chairman of the higher council for science and technology (HCST) an initiative was designed to enable university students in Jordan to continue learning through the internet while staying at home to salvage what remains of the current semester. Moreover, this program will prepare the stage to institutionalize digital learning within a “blended” system of distant-digital learning mixed with in-class learning for future semesters.
This initiative comes as a collaborative effort of the HCST, ministry of higher education and scientific research (MoHESR), accreditation and quality assurance commission of higher education institutions (AQACoHEI), and some of the major Jordanian universities.
The main idea of this program is to utilize the already existing digital learning materials by many of the universities in addition to using open source material available at the internet. Some of the Jordanian universities have already started this program for the current semester for their students. What is needed is to open up these university systems to all students for all universities.
