His Excellency King Khalid University Rector, Prof. Falleh R.M. Al-Solamy, inaugurated a new electronic service for meeting management titled 'myMeeting'. The service was recently launched by the General Directorate of Information Technology. It helps to manage meetings, archive files, record meeting minutes, follow-up on assigned tasks, and memorialize decisions made.

 

CIO, Dr. Salem bin Fayez Alelyani, explained that 'myMeeting' is the culmination of an agile development process that entailed feedback, iteration, collaboration, and adaptability. He noted that 'myMeeting' has many features including location reporting and on-demand e-invitations. Of particular note is that the application is adaptable and can modify standing provisions as circumstances change. Also, invitees can assign a representative to attend on their behalf.

 

The application also provides many convenience features. For example, members can review files and minutes at any time remotely. Members can also posit questions and cast votes on topics of discussion or determination at their convenience from any location. The application provides for on-going task assignment and milestone tracking on a continuous basis depending on the nature of the project.

 

'myMeeting' electronically manages all aspects of meeting invitations, invocations, decision making, tracking, and record keeping of meetings of any size or significance.

 

King Khalid University, represented by the Deanship of Community Service and Continuing Education, has opened registration to the 'Lawyer Preparation Program', which will issue legal licenses upon completion. The registration process starts on Tuesday, 04/04/1440 AH. This program stems from a cooperation agreement between the university and the Ministry of Justice, represented by the Justice Training Center.

 

On this occasion, the Dean of Community Service and Continuing Education at King Khalid University, Dr. Omar Alwan Ageel, explained that the purpose of this license training program is to ensure that law students and neophyte lawyers can successfully transition from academic study to the actual practice of law. The training programs were designed by highly experienced legal scholars and practitioners. The training focuses on the procedural aspects and practical knowledge required to navigate the legal system within the Kingdom. The training program also prepares burgeoning lawyers to attend various types of hearings and represent relevant interests in court.  In the same regard, he emphasized that the major advantage of the program is that it ends with a legal license to practice under direct supervision from the Justice Training Center at the Ministry of Justice. Of note, the program will utilize a variety of learning strategies such as discussion sessions, mock trials, simulation, procedural research, and guided readings. The program will be professionally delivered by a select number of elite faculty members from the College of Business, the College of Sharia and the Fundamentals of Religion, and subject matter experts from the Ministry of Justice.

 

The program has two tracks - vocational and training. The vocational track spans three-years in an undergraduate program. The first year is divided into two semesters and focuses on the theoretical aspects of law and encompasses 16 credit hours and 9 courses each semester. The second year focuses on professional skills to put the theoretical knowledge into practice. The third and final year involves internships at courts, government/corporate legal departments, and private law offices. After fulfilling all of the program requirements, graduates receive a legal practice diploma, license to practice, and a certificate of training for each course.

 

The training track program also spans three years and entails undergraduate, higher diploma, and graduate degrees. The first two years involve training in both theoretical legal courses and short training courses. Some of these courses are focused on developing professional legal skills. In the final year, trainees must enter into a legal practice in a court, legal department, or law office. After fulfilling all of the program requirements, graduates receive a legal practice diploma, license to practice, and a certificate of training for each course.

Dr. Musslam Abdulfatah Hassan Al-Said proffered a scientific study entitled 'Vocal Guidance for Children and Its Effect on Proper Linguistic Construction'. In sum, the study stressed the importance of mothers using sign language along with auditory utterances, in the beginning, to teach infants how to develop language skills in the future. The study also recommends the use of certain educational strategies, books, and websites as specialized supplemental material.

 

The purpose of Dr. Al-Said's research is to identify the best methods and practices for mothers to foster vocal and language development early-on. These strategies reinforce positive aspects of child developments and help ensure future proper language learning and performance through different stages of informal and formal education. In addition, Dr. Al-Said reviews traditional Arab principles in language functionality development in infants. Even the best modern theories recognize the effectiveness and validity of this method. The data shows the different means by which infants and children learn correct vocal performance and correct any vocal defects. The study also reviews the potential adverse consequences of inadequate child language development efforts.

 

Dr. Al-Said explained that the use of sign language (along with auditory signaling) through the age of 8-months is critical. Sign language is an integral and vital part of learning the speech systems in Arabic and other languages. By way of example, he reviews a case in which a 3-year-old child had significant linguistic development issues which delayed his language and social skills. This child had not been adequately educated using the proper combination of auditory signals and sign language when the child was an infant. The study also found that infants as early as 45 days in age follow the sources of sounds and optical signals. Of course, these abilities vary by individual.

 

One alarming conclusion of the study is the deleterious effect of modern technology on child linguistic development. The research indicates that infants and children exposed to modern technology devices may experience isolation, and as a result, it may stunt linguistic and social development. In extreme cases, some children develop anomalies such as the ability to hear well but not speak.

 

Even further, the research confirms the effectiveness of the classic Arab-Islamic approach to linguistic development in infants and children. This traditional method plays an important role in children becoming physically healthy and linguistically competent. This conclusion is confirmed by Johann Ludwig Burckhardt who said: 'I shall here venture to affirm, that by far the best Arabic is spoken in the Desert, and that Bedouins are as much distinguished from other Arabs, by the purity of their language, as they are by that of their manners. That they thus preserved, during so many centuries, the purity of their language, without books or writings, may with probability be ascribed to the frequent practice of learning by heart and reciting poetry'. This corroborates the well-known and generally accepted practice of Arab-Islamic linguistic development methods. It is incumbent upon parents to observe best practices so that society's sons and daughters grow to be mentally, physically, and linguistically healthy.

 

Dr. Al-Said also stressed that mothers should be educated so that they understand and can successfully fulfill their duties of physical, mental, and linguistic development. Constant vigilance is required through every stage.

 

King Khalid University is committed to raising awareness about these important issues and supporting educational efforts that help improve child development. Through the use of news articles, workshops, conferences, and the like, the university will play its part in making sure that children in the Kingdom have every advantage in becoming healthy, competent, and engaged citizens.

Al-Shahrani placed and won an award in his category for his design of an application called 'Lyxar'. Lyxar is a comprehensive mobile application that can be used for early diagnosis and treatment of those who do have or may have dyslexia. Dyslexia is a fairly common disease that manifests in early childhood and is often difficult to diagnose. The application is used to diagnose and treat dyslexia by way of games. The software is designed to indicate whether the user either has or may be prone to developing dyslexia. The application is based on the best medical evidence indicating the presence of dyslexia. The app comes complete with recommendations for centers that specialize in the treatment of dyslexia and contact information for consulting physicians who treat and/or research the learning disorder.

 

Faculty of Pharmacy Dean, Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Saeiri, congratulated Al-Shahrani for his magnificent achievement at the Reimagining Healthcare in Saudi Arabia Health Hackathon. 'Al-Shahrani's prize-winning effort is especially notable given the large number of highly qualified contestants participating in the hackathon. This reflects the high level of ability and hard work associated with the development of this application and the talents of the students at King Khalid University', he said. The dean also expressed his gratitude to the university rector for his continual and generous support of the students pursuing academic excellence in all fields.
