ITI-VITI- Virtual Learning
Theme: E-Education
Implementation Date: Mar 08, 1998

ITI - The Information Technology Institute (ITI) is a national institute established in 1993 by the Information and Decision Support Center (IDSC). It provides specialized software development programs to fresh graduates, as well as professional training programs and IT courses for the Egyptian Government, ministries, and local decision support centers.


In 1996, ITI launched its second branch in Alexandria to facilitate the widespread use of Information Technology throughout the country, and expand the outreach of ITI. Over the past 12 years, ITI has supplied the public administration institutions with highly-trained professionals in various IT domains.

In 1998, the Egyptian Government introduced (VITI) which is a virtual ITI. This was a leading project in Egypt and the Middle East, set up for spreading IT knowledge, and enhancing the training process with state-of-the-art technologies. Its work is based on the belief that technology is nowadays more important than capital assets, and public administration institutions should be at the forefront of it.

Since its creation, VITI has served a large number of people and introduced IT knowledge to them in their own native language. The VITI courses available online are complemented by high quality virtual teaching. An increasing number of public servants are trained and supervised by VITI.
