At the University of Nicosia, we recognise that technology has a crucial part to play in higher education, and that enhancing learning, teaching and assessment through the use of technology is one way we can address our strategic vision and mission in higher education.
Some of the key benefits of using technology include improving the efficiency of existing processes carried out in a more cost-effective, time-effective, sustainable or scalable manner. As there is growing evidence that appropriate use of technology may improve learning, we use the most up-to-date technologies and state-of-the-art learning design theory. An integral part of our approach to the learning design of our e-learning courses is the institutional commitment to help our students develop higher-order skills of critical analysis, reflection, and problem-solving.
Our Distance Learning Newsletter aims to inform all relevant stakeholders on important issues, news and developments that are related to our online efforts. We do hope that readers will find this both informative and useful.
