Technology Supports Learning at the Higher Colleges of Technology


Higher Colleges of Technology Western Region Colleges (WRCs) created and installed three interactive distance learning classrooms at the Madinat Zayed College and three at the Ruwais College. This paper describes the benefits these IDL classrooms have provided to both teachers and students at the colleges and how they have served to bridge the gap between separate campuses with shared resources. Based upon feedback from students and teachers, this paper also explores the guiding principles, including appropriate resources and training, needed in order for the IDL classrooms to operate successfully.
