On Monday the 2nd of October 2017, the Information Systems and Technology Center (ISTC) launched the new Course Portfolio feature in the "MyGJU" portal accessible from the university’s official website.
The main objective of the new feature is to manage course portfolios in "MyGJU" for archiving, reuse, quality assurance (QA), and accreditation purposes. The course portfolios can be edited and approved by faculty members and schools respectively, while both students and instructors may view their respective course portfolios.
One of the extra benefits of developing this feature is that it could be considered as a step forward toward a basic E-Learning platform, since it encourages students to log in to "MyGJU" constantly and use this feature to access the materials published by the instructors on a weekly basis. Moreover, it supports the departments’ future accreditation profiles and QA at GJU.
The flow included six main areas that were developed after comprehensive research to match regional and international Quality Assurance and Accreditation standards, which are: Course Description, Course Objectives, Course References, Course Learning Outcomes, Exam Assessments and Course Weekly Schedules.
It is also worth noting that the system was designed and developed by Dr. Feras Al-Hawari as well as Eng. Hala Barham and Eng. Mai Alshawabkeh.
