E-Learning Repository System for Sharing Learning Resources Among Saudi Universities

Part of the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering book series (LNICST,volume 138)

Abstract

This paper discusses the status and diversity of needs for building a centralized e-learning repository system for Saudi Universities. The study is based on surveys that were distributed to faculty members in various Saudi Universities. The purpose is to provide an analytical overview of the current needs for a unified e-learning repository system among Saudi Universities for sharing learning objects and materials. Moreover, the primary aim of the study is to give an evaluation of the needs of faculty members by gathering facts about the current demands and future adoption among Saudi Universities. To achieve this, the services needed by each part in the universities were analyzed.
