An agreement between the British Council and the Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research was signed on Monday July 4th. This project was introduced by the Virtual University of Tunis (UVT).
As a result of this agreement the Virtual University of Tunis will officially be able to host a selection of British Council online learning activities and resources on its virtual learning site, which will then be made available to all Higher Education institutes in Tunisia.
Such a partnership agreement would permit the Virtual University of Tunis to provide online courses tailored by the British Council. Recently, two British Council online courses, English for IT and Second Life Business English, were piloted with three different higher education institutes in Tunisia. Being introduced on the UVT platform, the courses willarget to a wider audience in Tunisia, aiming to improve student’s English skills for employability.
