5. CONCLUDING REMARKS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

The paper presents a successful integration of research, teaching and community services through the use of web-based educational courses and discussion forums. The results obtained from the project are in accordance with the recent panel discussion presented by Agogino et al [8] which showed clearly how boundaries of engineering education practice can be stretched through the integration of education, research and community services. Based on the present work, the following conclusions can be drawn:

·          The research on e-Learning concepts and tools shows clearly that building an educational web site is not a difficult task, rather any one can build a site for his students. Basic Microsoft applications available on standard personnel computers can be effectivelly used to build a web site.

·          Web-based courses on Metrology and Quality Control in Arabic language have been developed and hosted on the web for technical and engineering students; They are freely accessed at the links (http://hctmetrology.tripod.com) and (http://hctmetrology.tripod.com/quality/) for any one looking for training on these engineering topics which are of crucial importance in nowadays global economy.

·          The web-based learning approach is well accepted by our students; It has been found to be very efficient in enhancing the quality of learning and training at vocational training and engineering education levels.

·           More success to the e-Learning package was added by linking the web-based courses to Arabic discussion forums. This approach has been found effective to create an interactive environment to students, teachers and practitioner engineers where knowledge can be constructed and experiences can be shared and exchanged.

 The authors believe that it is very possible to integrate teaching, research and community services through the use of Information and Communication technologies especially the web-based learning approach. It is our duty to make use of these technologies to duplicate our traditional course material into digital form and hence produce and disseminate it as an  educational material through the web. This will certainly change us from pure consumers of the knowledge produced by our fellow educators at the west to producers of knowledge to our Arab community and to the whole humanity.
