Under the patronage of the Dean, Dr. Abdullah Al-Melhi and supervision of Dr. Muhammed Shuaib Asiri, Vice-Dean for Academic Development & Quality and Dr. Yahya Assiri, Vice-Dean of the College, the E-Learning Unit of the Faculty of Languages & Translation organized a presentation titled, A Perspective on KKU: Online International Testing Center by Mr. Rizwan Ghani on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 11:00 am in the E-Learning Training Center A/3/86.
Mr. Rizwan Ghani proposed establishing an online International Testing Center (ITC) at King Khalid University for holding international tests like the ACT, CLEP, AP, PISA, ACT, GRE and SAT. Mr. Ghani said that the ITC could help students, professionals, and the public gain access to approved international courses, training, examinations, and entry/admission tests locally as part of quality education, standardized testing and community service in the Asir Region. Mr. Ghani also mentioned that the ITC could help KKU to standardize education, reduce costs for many elements of the testing lifecycle, and support candidates realize optimum convenience by offering tests on-demand and year-round. It also serves to assist accelerated graduation pathways. He also pointed out that digital education and computer-based testing (CBT) may help align high school and university education and testing in KKU and the Asir Region with global standards. As a result, our students will be familiar with them from an early age, and it will enable them to do well in courses, examinations entry, admission tests and jobs at the local and global level.
Mr. Abdullah Al-Rezgi, Director of the English Language Center, Mr. Muhammed Jabir Asiri, E-Learning Specialist, and faculty members graced the occasion. Mr. Mohsin Khan, E-Learning Unit Supervisor, and Mr. Rizwan Ghani proposed a vote of thanks to the seminar participants for the insightful feedback and recommendations.
