    Cairo, 1 June 2005

    Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Dr. Tarek Kamel witnessed today the signing of a cooperation agreement, which aims at boosting the educational and technological development in the domain of e-learning in Egypt.

    The two-year agreement entails benefiting from the Middlesex Universityís expertise in developing the e-content for educational materials in the academic sector. Some of these educational courses have already been circularized and made use of at a number of Egyptian universities representing the agreement signed between MCIT and the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the beginning of 2005. MCITís E-Learning Competence Center (ELCC) is the incumbent body activating this agreement through digitalizing educational materials and hosting them on the centerís e-learning systems.
