The new portal, available in both English and Arabic, uses smart design features to significantly improve site navigation, is user-friendly and also includes a discussion forum for IT enthusiasts.

The ITEP portal is designed to benefit everyone supporting a range of people: students, teachers, trainers, parents and alumni. For students, bilingual content is available to support the school curriculum on IT education. Students can also get free e-mail accounts and access to online discussion forums to learn, discuss and share their knowledge of IT skills and education.

“The ITEP’s mission is to focus on technology to provide better education. I’m pleased to say that this portal provides the tools for our students to communicate and interact with each other to further their understanding of IT. Clearly, this portal complements ITEP’s mission," said Dr Abdulla Al Karam, Director of ITEP.

A directory of trainers is available to students as well so that they can enjoy immediate online access to trainers, to help with queries and expand their understanding of IT.

The portal has been designed with teachers and trainers in mind, to maximise their contribution towards IT education. A knowledge repository, the portal provides a central resource of online content. Educators can access a range of applications and information to help them teach, keep track of their students' progress as well as moderate student forums to provide guidance, support and valuable feedback where it's needed.
