ITWORX Education Claims the E-Learning “Innovation Product Award”

Following its participation at the 10th GESS Exhibition in Dubai.

ITWORX Education’s globally acclaimed social e-learning platform, WinjiGo, has won the Innovation Product Award in the e-learning category at the 4th annual Global Educational Supplies and Solutions (GESS) Awards in Dubai. ITWORX Education was awarded the coveted title during a special ceremony recently held at the H Hotel, following its participation at the 10th Global Educational Supplies and Solutions (GESS) Exhibition and Conference, where the front-running education services provider, in partnership with Microsoft, shared next generation ideas and innovative, technology-led classroom practices and solutions to stakeholders in the field.

The Innovation Product Award honors ITWORX Education’s successful implementation of its WinjiGo platform at a Syrian refugee camp in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, and highlights its excellence in harnessing cutting-edge technology towards delivering sustainable, quality education to “Children in Distress” around the world.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Hatem Sallam, CEO of ITWORX Education, said: “It is an honor to win GESS’s highly regarded Innovation Product Award, which is not only a testament to the power and versatility of the ‘WinjiGo’ platform, but also pays homage to ITWORX Education’s unwavering commitment to push boundaries and bring continuous progress to the e-learning arena in the region as well as across the globe. Thanks to a setup process that doesn’t require significant additional investments such as building schools, or time-consuming tasks such as waiting for skilled teachers, the project’s implementation is fast and streamlined, and can take place whenever and wherever it may be needed, extending WinjiGo’s competence to serve previously unexplored territories”

Designed to deliver an engaging and interactive social learning experience, the WinjiGo e-learning platform is equipped with a set of rich features that promote 21st Century skills, including course planning, a gamified learning experience for formative and summative assessment, self-assessment, social communities, and virtual classrooms. WinjiGo’s learning platform uses a blended learning model, with digital content tied into curriculums and smart technology-powered learning centers.

ITWORX Education is currently working on several initiatives that aim to introduce its inventive e-learning solutions and deliver sustainable, quality education to the children of the world, not only to Syrian refugee students, but also to “Children in Distress” who currently have no access to education because of wars or natural disasters.

AURAK Celebrates 6th Annual Global Day

The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK), has celebrated one of its most-anticipated annual events; its 6th Global Day.

AURAK, which boasts a student body of 49 nationalities from across the six inhabited continents, saw its campus flooded by a vibrant festival of color and sound, attracting visitors from across Ras Al Khaimah and beyond., demonstrating the extent to which AURAK has established itself as a regional hub in terms of education and culture.

A mini village which was established, consisting of booths serving traditional food and displaying cultural artefacts, included several countries from across the Middle East and North Africa region, such as the UAE, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Syria, as well as a diverse range of other nations, including Sudan, Somalia, Pakistan and the United States.

Speaking at the event, while wearing an outfit celebrating his Cherokee heritage, Dr. Lee ‘Rusty’ Waller, dean of student services and enrollment management, stated, “Global Day is one of our most important events in terms of cultural exchange. This represents a means to get to know one another and to learn to appreciate each other’s culture. Through this, we learn how to understand and work together.”

Prof. Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, the university’s president, echoed these sentiments, claiming, “This is one of the university events that I am always looking forward to. I am extremely proud of the diversity we have at AURAK. It is important to celebrate cultures other than our own, and to promote understanding and acceptance. As our university grows I hope to see even more nationalities represented here.”

Prof. Al Alkim was also keen to stress how this year’s Global Day is a sign of the university’s development, pointing out, “Five years ago I witnessed this event for the first time as AURAK president. What we have now does not compare. Our student body has increased tenfold and the campus has expanded dramatically. What we have achieved in this short time is remarkable, but we are only just getting started. There is much more to come.”

The celebrations ran deep into the evening, with traditional performances, music and dancing, and other exhibitions of national heritage.
