Rising to the Challenge

COVID-19 is changing our lives and how universities do education. Educational institutions worldwide have been struggling with how to adapt to this reality. Our initial priority is to support the faculty to facilitate the development of their fully online and blended-learning courses using educational technology so that they are better prepared to rise to the challenge of providing quality education within a restricted environment.
