Toward Moroccan Virtual University: Technical Proposal

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 745)


Due to the Corona virus (COVID-19) and in order to ensure education and school continuity, universities around the world; including Moroccan ones; have moved abruptly and integrally to distance learning mode due to the confinement decision. Unfortunately, this transition occurred in an abrupt manner without the universities being sufficiently prepared for it. In this context, many countries around the world become motivated to virtual university projects, which will undoubtedly make it possible to overcome, without any difficulties, some constraints, related to the lack of qualified human resources, cost and time limitation. This concept presents the same advantages of the e-learning one but in an official form, that may target a large number of students around the world, which respects the famous slogan “Education for everyone”. In this paper, we will propose a Moroccan virtual university architecture, followed by an overview of technology proposal that could help in the implementation and data treatments steps.
