ICOE at Ibn Zohr University, Morocco

Go To the list of ICOEs


By Ahmed Almakari, Ibn Zohr University, Morocco

The ICOE at UIZ is an expansion of the Center for Pedagogical Innovation. The Center is open to all teachers as well as to PhD students.

The ICOE at UIZ aims to:

  • help teachers and students use and design free educational resources.
  • provide them with a work area and a recording studio equipped for the production of MOOCs, SPOCS and any educational resources free to exploit in their work.

It is clear that the Center has already had a positive impact on teachers who are beginning to discover the importance of open education and open educational resources, which was not the case 3 or 4 years ago. So far, it has already been attended by more than 110 teachers and 35 PhD students for advice or to record course podcasts.

For the future, we hope to strengthen this spirit beyond the OpenMed project.
