Riyadh’s Princess Noura University has partnered with Pearson to provide its preparatory year students with mathematics and IT course content for tablet devices as part of the University’s efforts to build a world class digital learning environment for its students. Under the agreement, 12,000 female university entrants have access to this technology.
The content is delivered through Pearson’s MyLabs Enterprise e-learning technology, an online homework and tutorial system that is used by tertiary institutions around the world. The agreement represents the rapid move towards digital learning in Saudi’s higher education sector, as the KSA Government continues to channel unprecedented funds into creating a world class education system in the country.
The introduction of some of the world’s best learning technology into Princess Noura University has helped the university’s students achieve their learning goals, and equipped them with the skills they need to thrive in Saudi’s increasingly digitally-reliant economy. It is hoped that the partnership between PNU and Pearson will help create female graduates that are extremely math and computer literate – helping guarantee the productiveness of Saudi’s future workforce.
