Colleges to use technology to promote programmes in Kuwait
Representatives of at least 15 accredited US universities and colleges will use technology to promote their programmes and highlight learning opportunities for Kuwaiti students.
In addition to the traditional paper brochures, the representatives will use multimedia packages on iPads, Todd Bullock, the cultural attaché at the US embassy in Kuwait, said ahead of an educational fair for US universities on Saturday.
“Many of the participating universities at the fair will have mobile audio/visual presentations where students can look at the representatives’ iPad and see a video of a class, student life, and students’ residency such as apartments and dormitories,” he said. “The visitors will be able to meet these representatives who could link them with either potential faculty advisers or admission officials to provide them with more information about the school,” Bullock told Kuwait News Agency (Kuna).
Students will be able to get information on education programmes, ranging from summer camps for high school students at some of these universities to English language, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programmess in a wide variety of fields, Bullock said.
“We picked these schools because they have a good tradition of giving personalised attention to their prospective students. We think that this is important for the Kuwaiti market,” he said.
