EU Tempus Cairo University E-Learning Centre


In computer based technologies students are helped to think constructively, critically and reflectively. The main aim of the Cairo University E-Learning Centre is to bridge the currently existing gap between the advanced, technology enhanced teaching and learning methods in Europe and Egypt. These advanced teaching methods should enhance the Cairo University teaching staff skills, provide better feedback facilities on students' performance, and afford continuous fruitful monitoring.

Moreover, the WBT environment allows interaction between students and makes student-student and student-teacher synchronous and asynchronous communication possible. Offering learning on demand, and life long learning possibilities to everybody is also an advanced goal of the centre. Besides, we plan to use the proposed E-Learning centre with the already existing one in Aachen University of Technology to design an intercultural virtual campus, thus bringing together students from different cultures and giving them the opportunity to exchange their experiences in the area of technology enhanced learning.

See also the CUELC Workshop "Challenges in Interkucltural Virtual Campus Systems" (in CUELC Newsletter).


Providing suitable SW/HW and human resources to create and maintain an advanced e-learning education centre that is ready to provide both online and/or offline education facilities. The centre will also follow up-to-date features for extending its e-learning system.


The centre should be a source for creative development of e-learning material and environment. It should also facilitate cooperation in the field of e-learning and intercultural studies.
