The instability and daily dangers in Syria have deprived most students, if not all, of the opportunity to learn, especially the large numbers of students displaced to border areas where they cannot find adequate schools or cannot get to them. Thus, Orient for Human Relief started the Orient Virtual School project by the beginning of 2014 to allow Syrian students to pursue their education from their homes, or anywhere else in the world, while only having to attend final examination at end of the school year at Orient School in Reyhanli.
This educational project began when “Orient for Human Relief” applied the idea of e-learning (distance learning) to the Libyan-curriculum high-school students. Upon registration, students could follow their classes in school throughout the semester via the school’s electronic website. At the end of the semester, Orient for Human Relief transported the students in special buses to the examination center and insured that only their personal ID would allow them to travel between Syria and Turkey.
The Importance of Distance Learning
How Orient Virtual School Works
Interactions between students and teachers are facilitated, either via private emails, or through the website where students’ can post their comments or questions regarding any lecture. Furthermore, there are closed discussion groups for students, as well as other groups for teachers.
The school conducts monthly quizzes for students in the form of MCQs to prepare them for final examination which is a comprehensive test that follows the same format.
