E-Technology Lecture Concluded in Amman, Jordan. Part of the Third Information Technology Forum in Gaza.

16 May, 2009

Colleges of Computing and Information Technology/Jordan branch held last Tuesday 12/4/2009 a technology lecture at the Arab Open University in Amman, as part of Third Information Technology Forum which commenced at the Islamic University (IUGaza) in Gaza.

The lecture in Amman used a video conference with the Forum in Gaza.  According to the organizers this lecture is part of academic support initiative to the Islamic University of Gaza, the Union has launched earlier, in collaboration with a number of Academic institutions in the Arab world.

ArabCrunch tried to live steam the event via Qik using my Nokia 5800 mobile, but due to continues wireless network disconnections, we were not able to stream the whole event, however the lecture video conferencing with Gaza went well, as it was using a specified IP.

During the lecture in Amman Dr. Fawaz Al Zool the Chairman of King Abdullah IT Faculty, presented e-government and how it would use the Internet and the web to streamline operations and create a better service for citizens.

Dr. Iman Abu Rob, Chairman of IT faculty at Al-Zarqa private university spoke about the quality of websites. And Dr Jihad Al Sadi Chairman of IT and computing at Arab Open University (video interviewed by ArabCrunch) spoke about e-learning, from e-courses and the use of web communities to foster the learning process.

According to the organizers, the Academic support initiative to Universities in Gaza was announced in the 26th of Feb. 09 after the “Israeli” war on Gaza which targeted civilian infrastructure such as universities. The initiative aims to strengthen collaboration between Arab academics in Arab and foreign universities and academics at the universities in Gaza in all fields, through mutual research and coordination in conferences and in the exchange of scientific publications.


According to a press release by IUG the forum was under the theme “Towards an information society”, and it aims to highlight the role of regional institutions in the development of social use of information technology.

Below is my Interview with Dr. Al –Sadi, bear in mind the quality is not so good, since it was done via mobile (Nokia 5800) at a low connection speed. (Actually I just started using Qik half an hour before the lecture, so again excuse me. We’ll have more live streaming tech related videos on ArabCrunch channel at Qik, so do not forget to subscribe there.)

    I think that in Ghaza and in the arab world the distribution of mobile web enabled devices is very high. Mobile learning could highly increase the quality of education and learning for the current set of tool and technologies available. For more information about mobile learning visit.
