About the Deanship

Civilizations prosper through science, and by believing in the importance of education and its outputs. The idea of establishing the Deanship of E-Learning and Distance Learning at Imam Abdul Rahman bin Faisal University in 2010 was an important step to keep track of the technological development in the fields of education. Since its establishment, the deanship has sought to keep pace with new developments in higher education and aspire to make a qualitative leap in it through the employment of technology in education while maintaining a high quality level towards achieving continuous development and modernization. This is achieved by applying a set of standards that form the general framework for quality from the value system that governs work in the Deanship.

In our deanship, we strive to provide students, teachers, and entrepreneurs with the latest technologies that allow them to exchange information in smart interactive ways, to enables them to comprehend and cover different fields of knowledge and science. We also contribute mainly to seamlessly integrate technology into the daily practices of teaching and learning, and to participate effectively in creating a stimulating and productive environment for learning.

The diversity of our team is considered a major advantage, starting from an expert in the content and scientific material, to a designer, a director who can present information in an attractive visual way that simplifies and imbeds it in the mind of the recipient, ending with a technologist who is the backbone of all operations through programming, development and providing an up to date technical solutions.
