Welcome to the Department of E-Learning

Department of E-Learning

In this dynamic era of technology, and with everyday advances in communication, multimedia, digital & mobile applications, the University of Business and Technology has to constantly adapt itself to technological advances, and develop and improve its own tools in regards to education. The use of educational technology provides an interactive learning environment for students and faculties all around the world. Saudi universities compete to provide a beneficial learning experience for their students, and some of them have begun implementing distance learning options. Along with the new regulated approach of approving online courses by the ministry of higher education, UBT has to adopt and apply e-learning to enhance the educational experience inside their campuses and outside as well.

VISION

To become the premier leader university of e-learning education in the region.

MISSSION

Develop an e-learning world where learners, teachers and researchers use technology to enhance the overall educational experience both on campus and off campus.

LMS-BlackBoard

Blackboard Learn is an application for online teaching, learning, community building, and knowledge sharing.
You can use any theory or model for teaching your online course because Blackboard Learn is open, flexible, and centered on student achievement.
At Blackboard, we nurture learners and support those who make education possible, from K-12 and higher education to adult learning and workplace training.
As you get started with Blackboard Learn, you'll find that teaching online shares many similarities with teaching in the face-to-face (f2f) classroom.

Pearson Labs

Pearson Labs are e-learning lab activities, exercises, tutorials and assessments that come with Pearson books. Students get to access the labs per purchasing the book required for the courses. Pearson team is always in contact with UBT for their continuous support & cooperation. Example of labs: STAT lab, Finance lab, IT lab, and others.

Computer Simulations

Computer Simulations are simulations provided with specific courses such as Marketing, HR, MIS and Finance. They include license student usage for educational simulations used by the instructor of the class and applied by the students.

Smart Classroom software

UBT’s campuses install smart software in each classroom and on each instructor computer. The smart software includes a smart notebook and smart board software and such. It allows the teacher to customize and design his/her own lectures to be interactive and animated and present it inside the classroom using the smart touch boards. It transforms a rigid text lecture into a creative, innovative and interactive experience inside the classroom. The students enjoy smart-board lectures and they get to experience the board when presenting their projects themselves or solve exercises on the board.

OBJECTIVES

  • Increase the learning & teaching efficiency and flexibility to adapt the changes in the business environments.
  • Improve students’ learning process by interactivity and boost their interest in learning where simulations, video projects, mobile learning, and such can result in fruitful engagement.
  • Enhance the assessment and evaluation process to evaluate students & faculties effectively in a timely manner.
