"We are all witness to the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This new environment is characterized by a technological fusion integrating physical, digital, and biological resources. This is evident by emerging technology in a variety of fields. As a result, new highly transformed industries and professions are on the rise. Given the accessibility of open educational resources and company-driven educational opportunities, the highly directed, narrow-focused, institutionalized learning, common in higher education is outdated.
A growing range of opportunities and challenges impact higher education. New technological advances, rising costs, global competition for quality students and faculty, global educational shifts in learning models and expansive informational and educational access, are evident. As such, a compelling need for the transformation of higher education has arisen."Professor Hamid M. K. Al Naimiy, Chancellor of the University of Sharjah
