The International Telematic University UNINETTUNO, established by the decree of the 15th April 2005 of the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research, delivers academic titles having a legal value in Italy, Europe and in the Mediterranean Countries, for first-cycle (bachelor) degrees, specialisation degrees (master), doctor’s degrees and master’s degrees. In the International Telematic University, UNINETTUNO distinguished lecturers of important universities worldwide deliver their courses in the Internet-based real and virtual spaces in Italian, Arabic, English and French.
A dream that has come true: with the UNINETTUNO you can attend your University from wherever you are with no more limits of space and time.
UNINETTUNO takes origin from the training model of NETTUNO - Network per l’Università Ovunque, a consortium of 43 Italian and foreign universities with which, since 1992, thousands of Italian and foreign students obtained a distance university degree thanks to television and the Internet. At present, many of these universities put at UNINETTUNO’s disposal physical facilities such as laboratories for conducting research work and training activities, libraries, halls equipped with PCs and classrooms to organize face-to-face exams sessions for the students. UNINETTUNO takes origin also from the international success of Med Net’U (Mediterranean Network of Universities) Project, funded by the European Commission in the framework of the EUMEDIS Programme, aimed at realizing a Euro-Mediterranean Distance University. With Med Net’U it was established a network of 31 universities of 11 countries of the Euro-Mediterranean Area (Algeria, Egypt, France, Jordan, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey). The development of Med Net’U from project to the system was supported by the Governments of the partner countries. Actually, on the 29th January 2006, in the framework of the Catania 3 Conference for the realisation of a “Euro-Mediterranean Area of Higher Education and Research”, 14 Ministers of Higher Education of several Mediterranean countries, undersigned a joint declaration by which they stated their goal of strengthening the distance learning system of the Mediterranean countries, by expanding the results attained through the Med Net’U Project. The strength and the process of growth of UNINETTUNO are unquestionably represented by the fact that it rapidly succeeded in acquiring a significant role at international level by concluding agreements with the countries of Europe, the United States, Latin America, Cina, Russia, Georgia, and Iraq. Very important agreements were undersigned with countries of the Mediterranean area, in particular with Egypt, Morocco, Syria, and Tunisia.
How to study
The entire teaching and learning process takes place on the Internet. In the portal www.uninettunouniversity.net there is a dedicated area: the Didactic Cyberspace, where teaching and learning take place in five languages: Italian, Arabic, English, French and Greek. The Internet-based learning environment transfers directly to the student’s desk: lessons, multimedia products, databases, exercises, evaluation and self-evaluation systems, online tutoring, forums, chats, thematic wikis.
In the Appointed Teaching Professor’s Page and in the Tutor’s Page are included the Learning Environments where you can find the Educational Materials that represent the course contents: Video Library
The digitized video lessons are the starting-point of the learning process. Each digitized video lesson is structured into several issues and is indexed in order to enable the student to follow the whole video lesson or to select the issue he wants to study more depth. Each subject is linked in a hypertextual and multimedia way to essays, books, exercise texts, virtual libraries, lists of websites (links to websites related to the subject that were selected by the professors and tutors). Online exercises
This section includes online interactive exercises linked to the topics treated in the video lessons. Virtual laboratory
It is an environment in which the student integrates theory with practice through a “learning-by-doing” process.
