Welcome to the Egyptian E-Learning University (EELU). The EELU is the first e-Learning University in Egypt. EELU is driving the Egyptian society towards a new learning culture. We believe that e-learning mobilizes the educational and cultural communities, as well as the economic, social and industrial players in Egypt in order to speed up changes in the higher-education and continuing education systems in readiness for Egypt's move to a knowledge-based society. Our biggest commitment is serving the individual needs of students and to let their priorities drive ours.
The Egyptian E-Learning University seeks to differentiate itself from other universities by providing high quality educational services anytime, anywhere, to serve students despite their location, background or life situation. EELU provides educational and training services with affordable price, to supply the labor-market with ready industry workers able to deal with advanced technologies, and to create and continuously improve teaching and the learning environment.
The educational policy of the university depends on an integrated educational system which facilitates a learner centre-based model, by providing face–to–face lectures between tutors and students, self-paced learning throughout the university portal to access e-courses and e-contents, virtual classrooms using the Internet and the university's Intranet and video conferencing facilities. We designed an educational model that combines the advantages of both traditional learning and e- learning in a distinguished blended model. Our courses are designed to be the most flexible and they are available online 24/7. We believe that where there is a will to learn, there must be a method of delivering an educational opportunity.
I am proud to report that we have been successful in achieving our goals in our first year of operation. We have opened three learning centers in three different governorates; Cairo, Tanta and Assuit. We are planning to have more learning centers in all the Egyptian Governorates to extend the university's geographic coverage. It was to Education Development Fund (EDF) and the Ministry of Higher Education a prominent and effective role in the establishment of the EELU.
I welcome you to the EELU portal. As the President of EELU and on behalf of the EELU team, we promise you to work hard to meet all challenges with hope and integrity. We also promise you to do our utmost to remain the leading University for providing quality education and human resources development, by using the most advanced approaches and techniques in e-learning.
