Cairo University, welcome to Eliademy

Cairo university

Cairo University (previously King Fuad I University, Egyptian University) is a public university in Giza, Egypt. It was founded on 21 December 1908. It is the second oldest institution of higher education in Egypt, notwithstanding the pre-existing higher professional schools that later became constituent colleges of the university, after Al Azhar University. It was founded and funded as the Egyptian University by a committee of private citizens with royal patronage in 1908. The University currently enrolls approximately 155,000 students in 22 faculties. It counts three Nobel Laureates, including  Yasser Arafat a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994,  among its graduates and is one of the 50 largest institutions of higher education in the world by enrolment and in the top 500 world universities.

The faculty of Pharmacy recently started using Eliademy for the new academic year and we are hopeful that their good experience will spread in all the other faculties and cover the needs of the 120.000 students.

We would like to remind you that All non-profits and public academic institutions have access to Eliademy Premium for free and those organizations can save 100.000s of euros per year by using it as a replacement for Blackboard or Moodle platforms for instance.

Students can now receive Printed Certificates for online courses on Eliademy

We are glad to announce a new functionality of Eliademy: you now have the opportunity to earn a Printed Certificate delivered right to your place, upon completion of an online course on Eliademy.

“This is one more service offered to our global community of learners and teachers. In the future we will bring more ecosystem services in order to fully transform education into a pure digital service” says Sotiris Makrygiannis, CEO of Eliademy/CBTec Oy.

While we already offer students to get free online certificates, this new functionality aims at providing you with a more tangible proof of your accomplishment. It “bridges yet another gap between online and offline education”, as Vitaly Repin, CEO of Metida Print AB Oy, supplier of Eliademy’s certificates. The printed certificates are mostly useful for learners who want a proof that they have acquired new personal and professional skills, through an online course. For example, they can easily be shown during an interview. They will contain serial numbers, protected by watermarks and holographic technology and can be printed with the Providers Logo and original signature. All LinkedIn digital certificates and PDF versions will remain free for those who do not need or want a paper copy.

This new functionality is offered to all courses but it is up to the instructors to activate it in two clicks from the settings of their course. The Printed Certificates are available at a small cost for students.
