Quality Matters Appoints King Khalid University
Among thousands of international educational institutions, Quality Matters (QM), a non-profit quality assurance organization, chose one of King Khalid University's e-courses as an ideal model and global reference to all QM candidates around the world.
The e-course "Computer Organization 2" was developed internally by King Khalid University and chosen by QM as a model of reference, to serve more than 6000 academic candidates for five years.
The competition to select the ideal e-course was very specific and included hundreds of international courses, which made this nomination a victory in the King Khalid University legacy, and an inspiration for King Khalid University to become one of the leading universities nationally and internationally in all fields.
It is worth mentioning that King Khalid University was the first educational institution to partner with the QM association in 2010 in the Middle East. At the end of 2010, the e-Learning Deanship established the e-Courses Quality Department with the mission to raise the awareness of quality in e-courses, to apply the standards required to achieve accredited model e-courses, and to promote the culture of creativity and excellence in education. The mission of the e-Courses Quality Department is augmented by an overarching imperative to measure performance indicators and developmental initiative efforts to achieve the deanship's vision to empower faculty members to design and manage high-quality e-courses leading to optimal learning outcomes for the students.
The university has chosen to build its partnership with QM due to its rich experience and leadership in the field of e-courses, and through this partnership, KKU adopted internationally accredited standards to become a center for quality in e-courses. To that end, the e-Learning Deanship has developed more than 130 e-courses in different fields, and among them, 32 courses are accredited by QM.
