Morocco is making progress in e-Learning initiatives. Distance learning is gaining momentum in Morocco with help from both the public and private sector.
Around 15 percent of private companies are investing on distant learning programmes. The increased availability and functionality of IT has brought new teaching tools to the Moroccan market, including mobile phones, video-conferencing, e-mail, discussion forums, chat software and document sharing. Open or remote learning programme (FOAD) provides flexible training opportunities to individuals, businesses, and government bodies. Recently, Morocco's finance ministry has decided to integrate a dedicated distance learning service into its organisational structure. The Ministry of National Education has begun work on an interactive television system (TVI) which aims to provide remote training for teachers across the Kingdom. Formademos, a local firm, has launched two Masters programmes aimed at university graduates with at least one year of work experience. One programme offers a degree in “education and employment systems technology”, and the other program offers a degree in business administration.
