Title: Reforming higher education in Saudi Arabia: The use of telecommunications technology
Author: Altowjry, Abdullah
Abstract: Internet technology has become a powerful tool since its advent. Online learning is a byproduct of Internet usage and is instrumental in higher education. In the United States, the use of online learning, also known as distance learning, is widespread. It is used in almost all educational institutions. Even third world countries, which are traditionally lagging behind in any educational or sociological enterprise, are now attempting to catch up with distance learning education. Some educational institutions in the Middle East, for example, have been using distance learning in place of traditional classroom instruction. In Saudi Arabia, there is a great need for taking advantage of the whole gamut of telecommunications technologies. The exploration of this need gives this research its foundation.
