Abstract

Technology has contributed greatly to the evolution of modern educational systems. Video technology can be a genuine educational tool. Recently, free video-sharing sites has helped to create and share an unlimited number of short video clips. This unprecedented increase have occurred due to easy access to digital media anywhere and anytime. Despite the abundance of recorded video materials, there is a severe shortage in high quality video content in Arabic dedicated to educational purposes. Therefore, a novel, well-designed system is highly recommended to enable volunteering teachers to create relevant educational content in Arabic and share it readily and easily with other teachers. This paper proposes the conceptualization of a web-based video sharing platform supporting the United Arab Emirates (UAE) MOE curriculum. Its main purpose is to ensure a gradual build-up of high quality videos in a repository for both teachers and learners in UAE schools in a seamless manner and suited to the MOE needs. The recommended site will incorporate as many intelligent capabilities to enable self-regulatory push-pull content for teachers to use whenever there is a need. // Paper ID 236
