AEBT launches Tele-Education at Herat University
Afghan Education for a Better Tomorrow (AEBT) is pleased to announce that based on its mission and principles, it is in the forefront of expanding opportunities for providing educational resources to various Afghan Institutions.
Top on its list is a “Memorandum of Understanding” between AEBT and Herat University (HU) to establish a Tele-Education Program that pairs Afghan expatriate professors in different fields - sciences as well as humanities - with HU educators and students.
Based on this MOU, AEBT launched the use of Tele-Education at Herat University to further improve the quality of education at that Institution through the integration of eLearning in the classroom. Tele-Education exposes students and faculty to international best practices.
AEBT provides the needed equipment and operational costs as well identifies potential collaborative partners among the professional expatriate community to schedule interactive, on-line seminars and lectures for selected classes.
Herat University, sets aside adequate classroom space, identifies specific needs for eLearning and supports these efforts through wider participation by its faculty and students.
Such partnership, believed to be the first with HU, are expected to be followed by similar collaborations with other interested colleges/universities throughout Afghanistan.
