Recommendations l.jpg

RECOMMENDATIONS

Pedagogical dimension

  • Facilitate the organization of training of trainers sessions through the creation of well equipped training spaces in each university and/or college.

  • Provide weekly an adequate training based on a schedule established under the constraint of the number of teachers and their different profiles.

  • Organize numerical-pedagogic trainings for new teachers.

  • Generalize and encourage the use of Moodle platforms in different disciplines.


Recommendations40 l.jpg

RECOMMENDATIONS

Technological and research dimensions

  • Develop tools for decision aid problems and specify qualitative and quantities e-learning indicators to evaluate approaches’ performance and to control progress.

  • Integrate intelligent components in the platforms for more interactivity and adaptability. For instance, Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS), automatic evaluation of contents and their impact on students outcomes, automatic classification of students in certification exams, adaptive e-learning strategies, tests and evaluations, automatic assessments, etc.


Recommendations41 l.jpg

RECOMMENDATIONS

Legal dimension

  • Clarify different roles of different e-learning actors and their remuneration

  • Create a new status for tutor having to be certified.


Recommendations42 l.jpg

RECOMMENDATIONS

Organizational dimension

  • Create a coordinator of the virtual education in each college, working in collaboration with the DVE.

  • Create adequate spaces for students with free Internet access

  • Equip all colleges with WIFI connections and enable controlled access

  • Organize more C2i certification sessions for teachers and students

  • Encourage development of HEQSPs, based on the initiative of the teachers and involved actors in e-learning, in order to obtain more relevant programs.


Conclusion and prospects l.jpg

Conclusion and prospects

  • Deployment of an e-learning project is incremental and subject to assessments

  • Information, awareness, training and motivation of actors and allocation of resources.

  • Collection of opinions of different actors, their vision and assessments will better involve the awareness and motivate them while providing improved educational process.

  • As prospects, the development of quality space courses and creation of C2i certification, production and training centers in colleges and universities

  • Even if technology opens several directions for progress and innovation; it is unable to change radically learning mechanisms. It is not the teacher who brings knowledge to the learner, but the later creates his own learning from his experience, failures and successes.
