Title: Innovative e-learning in Jordan: lessons learnt from the JOVITAL project
Date: 15 October 2020 at 11.00 – 12.30 CET
In the last three years, five Jordanian universities have been working, in collaboration with four European partners and with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, in a project called JOVITAL – Jordan Opportunity for Virtual Innovative Teaching And Learning.
The project has fostered dynamics of collaboration and knowledge exchange and has implemented an original approach to Virtual Collaborative Learning. By working in this project, the JOVITAL partners have learnt some lessons that can be useful for the development of online learning in the higher education sector, in Jordan and beyond.
In occasion of the celebrations of the Erasmus Days, the JOVITAL Partners have organized a webinar titled Innovative e-learning in Jordan: lessons learnt from the JOVITAL project, which will be held on the 15th of October from 11.00 to 12.30 CET. The objective of the webinar is to share these lessons learnt with other universities from Jordan and from other countries, to allow them to get to know and to possibly implement the JOVITAL approach with their students. You can see the event on the Erasmus Days website: www.erasmusdays.eu/event/webinar-on-innovative-e-learning-in-jordan.
