AASTMT to be the first university in Egypt to transition from analogue to digital learning

Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT) has signed a multiyear partnership agreement with global digital textbook and learning platform provider Kortext, to deliver world-leading learning opportunities to students, anytime, anywhere. AASTMT’s 25,000 students and researchers will benefit from easy access to the highest quality digital learning materials from all the major educational publishers including Cengage, McGraw Hill, Pearson, Taylor & Francis and Wiley.

The Kortext Platform provides a truly personal learning environment and experience for all learners whilst generating analytics to ensure every student can reach their maximum potential. Individual student analytics can be rolled up to course, faculty and university to optimise the learning process, advise students on better learning paths, and identify students at risk.

AASTMT has evolved to become a leading university in the Middle East with a particular focus on Science, Technology, and Maritime Transport. The partnership agreement signed with Kortext will ensure AASTMT has the educational technology to deliver the best experience to its students.

The President of AASTMT, His Excellency Prof. Dr. Ismail Abdel Ghafar Ismail Farag, stated,

There are clear benefits of partnering with Kortext that align with our ambition to ensure AASTMT remains at the forefront of higher education in the region. This initiative with Kortext will accelerate our ability to scale the very best of digital educational services to our students and academics.

James Gray, CEO of Kortext stated,

We at Kortext are proud to partner with AASTMT in its move from a print-based learning system to a digital-only learning system, the first of its kind in the Middle East.

Mr Gray additionally stated,

this partnership further enhances Kortext’s position as the leading supplier of quality educational technology and academic content across higher education in Egypt.

Her Majesty’s Ambassador to the Arab Republic of Egypt, Sir Geoffrey Adams KCMG, commented,

We are delighted to support AASTMT and Kortext in this truly ground-breaking project. AASTMT is leading the way in Egypt, and indeed the whole Middle East region, in adopting digital education across the whole university using the Kortext Platform. The UK and Egypt relationship is a very important one for my country and a partnership such as this, in the strategically important Education sector, further strengthens this relationship.
