Telecom and consulting experts on Sunday said demand for e-learning in Jordan is expected to witness a boom in the next five years, driven by a rise in Internet penetration and the spread of smartphones in the country. “In Jordan, literacy rates are higher than in other countries in the region and e-learning is the future of educationĀ« and in light of fast growth figures in the number of Internet and mobile users in Jordan, I expect demand on e-learning and e-training courses to rise sharply in the next few years,” Umniah CEO Ihab Hinnawi told reporters yesterday. “Students in remote areas, who may not have access to training centres can resort to e-learning and take courses on a variety of skills while at home. They can attend the courses online and interact with the presenters,” he said at a press conference to launch an online learning gateway, dubbed ULearn, which offers courses through web and mobile-based platforms.
