We attended the launch of Qurtuba Online Academy. Qurtuba Online Academy is a digital Islamic school based in South Africa. Their dual-curriculum [Cambridge International Assessment & Islamic Studies] ensures students a broad academic future, while simultaneously providing access to quality Islamic studies subjects, including Arabic.
Their classes provide all the necessary resources for students to thrive in a self-directed learning environment. Using the flipped learning methodology, students are provided with vibrant, engaging presentations, pre-recorded videos and other resources to engage with subject matter before live lessons, in which the teacher facilitates completion of problem-solving activities. This way students are able to familiarise themselves with subject matter in a meaningful way, at their own pace, before applying it practically. Currently servicing Grade 7-9s.
We interviewed Moulana Aboo Baker Mahomed about this new online venture. Enjoy!
