    ICT-Trust Fund e-Learning for HVIS Project Nominated to Partake in WSIS 2015 Contest

    Date published: 16 April 2015

    "Supporting e-Learning for Hearing, Visually Impaired Students (HVIS)” project—launched by the ICT-Trust Fund (ICT-TF), in partnership with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and UNDP Egypt—was nominated, and is now in the e-voting process, to take part in the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) contest in 2015 as one of the most successful developmental projects in the field of e-learning applications.

    The main goal of the project is to contribute to improving the living conditions and social inclusion of the hearing and visually impaired people in Egypt by using Information Technology (IT) for developing education levels for primary schools’ students and promoting their independency.

    The project’s outcomes include upgrading ICT Laboratories in four schools, training of teachers and students and organizing competitions to identify best practices and establish virtual community to gather all stakeholders. It was implemented by Egypt ICT-TF in cooperation with the Islamic development Bank, the Ministry of Education (MoE) and a number of NGOs.

    HVIS project succeeded in attaining its objective and impacted MCIT policy makers. Primary school curricula are to shift to e-curricula. MoE is keen to provide teachers with capacity building programs and has, therefore, opened new channels with IT companies to provide latest training for teachers, while the ICT-TF continues to support all beneficiaries by offering technical support services.
