Now, an Arabic version of Blackboard

By a staff reporter / 1 September 2007

DUBAI — Edutech Middle East, a leading international learning solutions provider, in collaboration with Blackboard Inc. will launch the Arabic-enabled version of Blackboard Academic Suite across Middle East, which integrates Blackboard’s widely-accepted applications for higher education institutions.

It will be formally launched at the first Blackboard Summit Middle East in Dubai, scheduled for September 5-6.

The package of programmes is expected to create a major impact and enhance the overall learning process in the region’s universities, as they provide advanced teaching tools, allow users to share educational content and build a learning community.

With an Arabic user interface, students and teachers from the Middle East region can easily adopt the technology and utilise it effectively for better results.

The new version allows users to view all features and tools in the Learning, Community and Content systems from right to left according to the orientation of the Arabic written language.

The Arabic Language Pack can be selected at the system, course and user level, providing flexibility to all users to choose their preferred language.

“Higher education institutions across the region are making tremendous strides in utilising state-of-the-art technologies that enhance teaching, administrative and student experience. Our strong partnership with Blackboard enables us to bring the latest technology-enabled tools for education institutions in line with our commitment towards the progress of the education sector,” said ASF Karim, Managing Director, Edutech.
