Webinar on Innovative e-Learning in Jordan


Innovative e-learning in Jordan: lessons learnt from the JOVITAL project


15 October 2020 at 11.00 – 12.30 CET in the framework of the celebrations for the Erasmus Days.

Recorded Webinar

Webinar Description

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.

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.
