Using Cutting-Edge Technology

The Shorelight Live learning technology platform allows students from all over the globe to earn a degree from top universities without leaving Qatar.

Here’s how it works: industry-leading faculty are broadcast to screens and classrooms in Qatar. They interact with you in real-time—lecturing and answering questions, supplying feedback, drawing up polls and surveys, and engaging with you as if they were standing physically in your classroom.

You, as the student, participate using interactive whiteboards, smart stylus technology, and your laptop.

Live Classroom Technology

  • Personalized level of exchange equal or superior to that in a face-to-face classroom.
  • Fully synchronous experience that ensures students can speak up at any time and be seen and heard by the instructor and other students.
  • A level of engagement where students and teachers come across as themselves and can show their personalities as individuals through their interactions.
  • Customized tracking software that enables the professor to ensure that every student participates and is fully engaged in the classroom experience.

Live Technology

Live-to-Classroom technology allows students to learn in a real classroom, with a professor lecturing live from their home university, using real-time course platforms. You can collaborate with your peers in the classroom, both locally and worldwide, and directly with your US-based university instructors. Engagement is higher than in regular face-to-face classes. Students can develop and grow in an enriched environment collaborating with classmates, faculty, and even students in other countries studying the same course in real-time.

We really feel that it is in the classroom environment that students experience an unprecedented level of engagement and motivation. “Students…value their interactions with classmates and small group work, the initial assessment of our field degree program shows we can achieve high student satisfaction and high levels of interaction in the Live Platform environment.”
