At the outset, Al-Sidairi reaffirmed the significance of the workshop, in discussing backing up factors to realize the operational efficacy, resulting from the shift to the e-education (remotely administered online education), either because of technical factors or due to academic restructuring.

He also underscored that the online or remotely-administered education is no more an emergency option only related to the ongoing pandemic, rather it is an indispensable strategic alternative, especially, in the future.

Al-Sidairi concluded saying that the Kingdom has provided the world with a distinct model, in the domain of e-education and online remotely-administered education, as it put the human safety, first and foremost, thus it managed to achieve unparalleled world recognized success, at the least of losses, on all socio-economic stages.
