Qatar University (QU) has adopted, for the first time, an e-system for induction meetings of new students for the Spring 2020 semester, which started on Sunday and will continue until January 9 in all colleges.
Dr. Nizam Hindi, Chairman of the Strategic Initiative Committee on the Electronic Induction Program said that the online induction meeting aims to develop the educational process at QU by facilitating a seamless transfer of information via a link sent to the students' e-mail with videos containing information of interest to them in their university life.
He said the introductory meetings focus on clarifying the university's policies and laws, the most important information and instructions that enable the students to enter and use the electronic portal to register courses for the Spring 2020 semester, as well as getting to know the IT services available at Qatar University to manage their academic affairs, student support and other types of services.
He pointed out that the students are being tested via an electronic link to ensure that they are familiar with the introductory program paragraphs. Al Hindi said that the students' success in the program is a condition to allow them to register for the academic subjects for the new academic semester.
