Niuversity’s unique Approach

Niuversity differentiates between education as a system and learning as a process. It strongly believes in the power of self learning which includes the individual different ways in which people do learn. Education doesnt necessarily mean that learning takes place and that is why it has been undervalued in the Arab world because usually it doesn't produce good results. People are ready to invest in their education when they know it is valuable and brings them good results. Therefore, Niuversity designs its courses in a way that makes the learner at the center of the learning process and can learn according to her/his own way, pace, and preference. The main focus is on making the learning happens at all levels to insure the highest benefits of this learning. Once it takes place, learning is transformed into a joyful activity and the learner becomes passionate about it. All this leads to the fact that learning does what it aims for. At Niuversity, learning aims to prepare you to be ready for the labour market of the 21st century

 

In order to do this, Niuversity has developed its own approach for the delivery of its courses and the design of the learning process that caters for all learners

 


Our Virtual Classroom                                   

Our lessons are delivered through a virtual classroom format where all the learners and their teachers virtually meet at the same time with their computer or smart devices. The class will be online and live The learning environment is very much like the real classroom. Niuversity uses an interactive system that allows the instructor and the learners to easily interact with each other throughout the whole class. Learners can ask questions and get answers in real time. Each learner can also talk privately to the teacher and gets the answer privately when s/he wishes. According to the nature of the course and the desire of the learners, learners can all appear on the screen and can see each other. Otherwise, only the instructor appears for everyone. However, at any time during the class, any learner can click the “raise hand” button which tells the teacher that this specific learner would like to appear on the screen and say something to the whole class (it is like coming to the teacher table in a traditional classroom)

Each live classroom will be recorded, and the recording will be available in each learner’s account. Learners can watch the recording as much as they need to make sure they get the ideas. In case any learner has extra questions, s/he can always communicate with the instructor and get answers

 

Learners will get assignments, according to the nature of the course, and get feedback for their performance. They will work on practical and applied assignments when applicable. They will do quizzes and tests and will receive certificates after attending and passing the course

 


 

Niuversity for Newcomers

Niuversity courses can also help those newcomers from Arab countries who have recently come to Europe and seek integration and entry into the local labor market. But very often teaching is in the language of the host country and newcomers have difficulties to learn in a new language. Thus Niuversity courses help this group to learn faster and can shorten the integration period by far. Whatever qualification they bring from home they can complement their knowledge by skills taught through Niuversity courses

Our Target Group

Our main target group is the youth in the Arab world. We have discovered that one reason for the Arab crisis is the crisis of education in the Arab world. Our diligent market research discovered that Arab learners suffer from two main obstacles in the learning process: Language and the Need for Guidance

 

 Access to Education: the Arab societies are growing at a very high rate – more than 60% of the populations in the Arab world are younger than 29 years. While learning in face to face classrooms is probably the best environment to learn it is practically impossible for all young people in our target region to access such education.  E-learning is the main tool to face the growth in the region. That is why Niuversity offers courses which are accessible through the Internet

 

 Language: One of the obstacles that the Arab youth face to access modern and online education is the language. Most of the courses and the programs that are available worldwide are offered in English. According to our research, the majority of the Arab youth don't feel comfortable doing the whole course in a foreign language. Therefore, Niuversity uses Arabic as the language of communication between instructors and learners to tear down the wall of missing language proficiency and to make them feel comfortable and secure

 

 Guidance: Niuversity caters for the guidance needs of its learners. Niuversity teaches its courses online live! In the virtual classroom learners can ask, discuss, give feedback. We have introduced also the concept of 'digital office-hours' where learners can talk to their instructors and ask them freely

 


 

Empowering Women

While many young men seek education abroad and far from their home countries, this opportunity is not given to the same extent to female students. Due to traditions, families are reluctant to let their daughters go abroad to live in “insecure” environments. Thus the Niuversity approach is explicitly empowering female learners because they do not have to leave their “secure” environment to get the education they consider to be important for them. Moreover, the skills that we teach them will enable them to work from their own homes and transform them into productive members of their societies
