Wednesday at the Hotel Montana, will take place the official launch of the first online teaching platform THESS (Hybrid Technology for Education, Science and Knowledge) “Made in Haiti” in the presence of the Ambassador of France, Elisabeth Béton Délègue.
Supported by the Embassy of France in Haiti and by the AUF, THESS is a platform that integrates multiple services: online education, university governance, educational management, collaborative tools (forum, chat)http://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-16710-icihaiti-education-first-haitian-online-education-platform.html
Developed by the “École Supérieure d’Infotronique d’Haïti” (ESIH), the platform is open to all member universities of the Conference of Rectors and Presidents of Universities of Haiti (CORPUHA). Its objective is to increase youth employment capacity by facilitating access to university education.
Learners, whether students or professionals, can follow their education online through a “student kit” that includes a tablet computer, an internet connection and a subscription to the digital library Cyberlibris.
Establish and renew a critical mass of expertise in Haiti is critical, that is why, THESS has implemented a face-evaluation system decentralized to guarantee the validation and certification of these formations. In the reentry 2016, in partnership with the Network of French Alliances in Haiti, two centers will be proposed one at Port-au-Prince and one in Cap Haitien.
