Launch of National e-Learning Centre in Jordan

In early May 2017, Professor Mark Brown was the keynote speaker at a conference in Amman, Jordan as part of a European funded Tempus project on enhancing the quality of technology-enhanced learning. Jordan2The event also served to mark the launch of a new National e-Learning Centre at Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT). Deputising for HRH Princess Samaya, the PSUT’s President, Mashhoor Al Refai, is reported in a brief story in the Jordan Times as commending the university’s efforts in building the Kingdom’s academic community’s e-learning capacity and the role of new digital technology in raising the quality level of education in Jordan.
