Dr. Mansoor Al Awar, Director of e-TQM College and Prof. Salah E. Khelfaoui Director of Academic Programs and Projects, e-TQM College, who were invited by IBM, the platinum sponsors of the conference, took part in the Middle East e-Learning Forum and Exchange, held on the sidelines of Online Educa Berlin, to provide an overview of the e-learning market in the Middle East.

“Online Educa Berlin presented us a unique opportunity to network with potential partners who have an interest in the Middle East Market. Additionally it was an opportunity to project ourselves as the leading provider of online courses in total quality management. It was a highly satisfying experience as we got new insights into and updates on latest developments in the field of online learning,” said Dr. Al Awar.

The Middle East eLearning Forum and Exchange provided a forum for organisations interested in the Middle East to meet with potential international partners, buyers and resellers who are interested in establishing contacts with organisations from the region to develop common projects and business interests.

“Our participation in Online Educa enabled us to highlight our expertise in delivering TQM education online to the Arab world. For example, we are the first in the Middle East to offer a Masters programme in Total Quality and Performance Management,” added Dr. Al Awar. “As the gathering included high level decision makers from the fields of education, business and government, the forum gave us a platform to initiate a dialogue that could grow into full-time partnerships.”

Online Educa Berlin covered several key aspects of e-Learning, including e-Learning strategies in companies and public sector and Future trends in e-Learning technology. The keynote speaker in the opening plenary was Nancy DeVincy, General Manager of IBM Learning Solutions. There were 1,572 registered participants from 68 countries.
