Online education is the next big thing for students in the Middle East, and the UAE is the latest to make it a reality.
A new law has been passed that gives online education a new lease on life in the region, and it could help drive up enrollment numbers.
The law, which comes into effect on July 1, will require schools to register with the Dubai Authority for the Registration of Online Education (DAAI) and require teachers to be registered with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.
Teachers are now required to be certified by the Education Ministry and to obtain the necessary education certificate.
This is the second time the Dubai government has passed a law in this area.
The previous one required all online schools in the UAE to obtain a certificate from the ministry before they can operate.
However, this time, all schools will have to register.
“We are trying to make online education more accessible to the population,” said Mohammed Abu al-Rashid, the Dubai education department’s general manager for education.
“There are so many schools that we are struggling to get registered.
We want to encourage students to learn online and to keep them interested and engaged.”
Abu al-Lughod, the deputy director of education, said the government is also hoping that online learning will help boost recruitment in the local economy.
“It’s also a way for the students to develop their skills in school.
We hope that the students will learn through these online learning experiences and then apply for jobs in the city,” he said.
The UAE is not the only country to embrace the internet.
The country also has a national education website, the National Education Service.
The new law will allow schools to use the site to post content online and send students to other online classes.
“The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Physical Education, the Ministry for the Arts and Culture, and other educational institutions have also been notified and they will be required to register online and be registered by the DAAI,” said Abdulaziz Bin Zayed, the head of the education department.
Education Minister Mohamed bin Jassim Al Zaid said online education has become an integral part of the UAE education system.
“This is something that will help us attract more young people to the UAE and will create jobs in our economy,” he told CBC News.
“This is a big opportunity for us to bring back more young jobs, to create more opportunities for people.”
