E-Learning Infrastructure

The E-Learning Deanship for eLearning has designed and deployed a world-class technology platform to support eLearning and eKnowledge processes at KKU. Students, faculty, and administrators achieve authorized/authenticated access through the center portal to a robust, fully integratedLearning Management System (LMS) and supporting applications and knowledge resources. This LMS extracts data from the Student Information Systems (SIS), and in the future the KKU library, and Blackboard’s e-Portfolio.

It also is supported by the Classroom Capture Application, Authoring Tools, e-Assessments, Virtual Classroom Tools, and a highly capableLearning Object Repository (LOR) that can share learning objects drawn from a variety of international open learning resources and content providers.

The Learning Management System
The LMS is used to offer the courses and facilitate administering the educational process with the different features that make the process and the experience simple and rich. Blackboard was chosen for its high efficiency and simplified user experience in addition to proven success with a huge user base of tens of millions.
The Learning Management System in KKU is simply a website that is accessible anytime and from anywhere in the world.
