KnowledgeOman.com & MECIT Partner for Free Knowledge Initiative

 

KnowledgeOman.com, the leading knowledge based community initiative in the country, along with Middle East College of Information Technology (MECIT), a leading higher education institute in Oman bringing excellence in learning, have joined hands to expand the spread of knowledge through the free community seminars and outreach in the country.

The KnowledgeOman.com team in a meeting with MECIT attended by Rym Aoudia, Head of Community and Media Affairs, and Jamal Al Asmi, Community Learning Facilitator, have agreed on the way forward and discussed the value and impact to be generated for the community and how free knowledge may be spread through an interactive and unique approach in these seminars.

Rym Aoudia, Head of Community and Media Affairs, says, “We are very pleased with this cooperation between KnowledgeOman.com and MECIT as a positive step towards empowering community engagement with free knowledge and complementing the nation’s vision in human development.”

As two knowledge-driven organizations in the Sultanate, the KnowledgeOman.com and MECIT tie-up fosters the community to further engage with various learning areas, network with specialists in different fields, and build valuable relations towards the development of a knowledge society.

Harith Al Jahwari, Head of External Relations at MECIT, adds, “MECIT as a leading educator in the country is pleased to support the KnowledgeOman.com seminars which facilitate the spread and share of knowledge across the community. These seminars bring value to students, professionals, academicians and all knowledge seekers and we are keen to support KnowledgeOman.com in its endeavors.”
