SPOCs PILOT: APPLIED IT + GLOBAL STUDIES

The Jamiya Project is currently piloting two 12 week blended (online and in-person tuition) ‘Small Private Online Courses’ (SPOCs, not MOOCs) in Applied IT and Global Studies, delivered in Arabic and certified by University of Gothenburg. These are being delivered in collaboration with a small team of Syrian academics and NGOs in the field - Norwegian Refugee Council and Jesuit Refugee Service, both in Jordan.

By making use of existing courses, learning infrastructure and technology, the pilot tests a model that makes use of the skills of refugee communities leading creation and delivery of new higher education solutions.
