Introduction to Computer as A SMART Course
ComputerSMART Course
In 2016, and after 2 years of preparation, Al-Quds Open University (QOU) announced for the first time the SMART courses model, and published the courses as OERs worldwide. Including the computer smart course, 8 complete courses are published online for both QOU’s students and learners worldwide. The Computer Course was offered for QOU students as a SMART Course for the first time in the spring semester of the academic year 2016/2017. And since that period, the course is offered in each semester along nineteen campuses of QOU in West bank and Gaza, and more than 8000 thousand students have been enrolled in this course as a total so far. Moreover, the computer SMART course designed and developed to take into consideration six principles: content modularity, diversity of learners, content interoperability, open accessibility, engagements and collaborations. And the impact of these principles was clear on the survey results according to the students. Also the results indicated that the student’s attitudes have been affected by this experience toward adopting the SMART model on other courses. Generally, and after this experience, we concluded that the SMART Courses will have a significant role in capacity building and in community development, especially they are well designed, OERs, self-learning oriented, and responsive to the digital native needs.
