MOOC Arabic platform Rwaq launches Ambassadors Program for students
Saudi’s massive online open course platform (MOOC) Rwaq has recently launched an Ambassadors Program and is now accepting applications from students in Arab schools.
The platform, which features courses solely in Arabic, will offer students the chance to be ambassadors and volunteer in enriching Rwaq’s scientific content and manage it in schools, universities, and institutes.
Ambassadors will connect with faculty members and invite them to offer content on Rwaq and participate in college meetings, own a supervisor account on Rwaq to help content providers upload content on the platform, and be part of Rwaq’s team.
In order to be an ambassador, volunteers must be studying in a college or a licensed insitute, must be active online and on social media, and must be committed to dedicating some time to work on their volunteering duties.
