The focus of educational technology has shifted from improving the efficiency of administration to inspiring pedagogical innovation and improving the learning experience.
In today’s environment, institutions are under increasing pressure to demonstrate educational outcomes, to tailor instruction to meet the specific learning needs of different students and to foster active learning.
Effective use of technology is a key means of addressing these challenges. We live in a time of very rapid and profound social transformation. Today, societies are evolving rapidly into knowledge-based societies.
The KSA leadership understands that the key strategic resource necessary for prosperity has become knowledge.Yet knowledge can be created, absorbed, and applied only by the educated mind. The aim is to provide a state-of-the-art learning environment that would offer the best possible educational and training opportunities for the Saudi community. This suggests that a university capable of serving the new society would have some quite interesting characteristics:
- Learner centered rather than faculty centered.
- Capable of rapid evolution to serve a rapidly changing world.
- Providing learning environments more compatible with lifestyles and career needs.
- Serving regional markets.
- Utilizing technology to provide anytime-anywhere learning opportunities.
- Stressing highly customized learning experiences tailored to a diverse clientele.
