1. 1.What did you learn about new teaching and learning practices (such as blended learning (face to face and E-learning), more than one instructor, European Instructors, remote lab (if working),…)?

 The e-learning experience was .. "flexible" ! For me not having to commit to any times or attendances was much more comfortable ,and since I spend a good amount of time "online" it made it easier to access the material and study it , if not on a daily bases but on a more scheduled time. Also the weekly online quizzes seemed to ensure the independent process of learning, at least for me. Having multiple instructors for this course made it feel a little crowded if to say, but there was much more added value and experience. I'd imagine if the course was during a normal semester it could've been much better.Also I found it harder to "explore" the material provided in depth and invest any time with the instructors since it was a "once in a course time" meeting for some.

 I wouldn't say i learned anything about 'new teaching and learning practices'. It would more accurate to say I have had a better experience learning the course since I am convinced that blended learning, better yet, e-learning is the most effective, fair, time-saving method of learning today. Receiving lectures from various instructors was definitely beneficial to cover the course from many different aspects rather than being exposed to a single discipline of teaching.
 (4%) 
 
 it was amazing to learn from different instructors and benefit from their knowledge. the remote lab is a great way of learning and very helpful.
 (4%) 
 
 it was a new experience , we shared alot of ideas with those instructors and institutions but on the other hand we had a massive difficulty of understanding their language their english was very bad.
 (4%) 
 
 It was a new experience actually, i was shocked at first and actually wanted to drop the course , but then i found that the idea of teachers from europe is great..also i have made friends from the other universities ..e-learning was good, the slides were acceptable and easy to understand. remote labs didnt work in jordan, but in spain they worked and was intersting.
 (4%) 
 
 The new learning way Is very exciting , having enough time to study and dynamically interacting with doctors .. Although it becomes an issue if the connection between the student and the teacher is lost or at some point broke (which is common) So with a specific modern-aged professors ( can use technology well) this process can be very useful
 (4%) 
 
 I think this type of teaching is better than the regular one, specially more than one instructor for one course ;because each instructor is a specialist in his field so he could give us more detailed information in that field
 (4%) 
 
 That it could help with getting different information from different people,and different educational backgrounds , which is important for an improved way of teaching.
 (8%) 
 
 I learned that this is a new trend in teaching methods, and i think that it should be expanded to conclude all the courses, i think that it is a very interesting and exciting method, and one can take benefits from it more than it can be taken from the usual methods.
 (4%) 
 
 the most amazing thing i noticed was the flexibility in the idea of blended learning, specially that in our time most of students have other commitments. the other thing is the cultural immerse of ideas through having European instructors. for the remote lab , in my opinion its an marvelous idea and huge flexibility in taking the data, but that is for beginners in engineering , because i still think that to make new data , new changes , you need to think outside of the box (remote Lab) , so the remote lab cant be held in researcher's institutions, because it stops the progress (flow) of ideas, also any cahnges in the lab will cost time and effort to make , but still its a great idea for undergraduate students, to understand the concepts behind many things in a flexible way
 (4%) 
 
 It is a good way to learn because it included several methods and break the routine
 (4%) 
 
 It's more enjoyable to learn this way, I think. one could improve communication skills and language skills along with engineering material being conducted live and online.
 (4%) 
 
 It teach me self depending when studying, improve my skills like communication and advance me to anew learning way .
 (4%) 
 
 New teaching such as E-learning is very important and im really happy to experience such a way of teaching. I think its better to offer more courses to study this way. European Instructors shared with us their ideas and this benefited everyone in this renewable energy course. Unfortunately remote labs didn't work.

 it becomes easier you can use any time it takes less effort

 The VLE method was very flexible and it gives you the opportunity to choose the place and the time for studying. We also had a new experience with the weekly quizzes which helped us to memorize the new topics that we had studied. We also had a very exciting experience of having different instructors from different countries and universities that’s why the course wasn’t traditional like the other courses we have taken before. But unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to discuss the material with the instructors.

 -Blended learning: some of the material was presented in class while other material was supplied through the website portal with scheduled quizzes and examinations. -We were exposed to several instructors' explanations of different materials using different approaches
 (4%) 
 
 learning from more than one source is very good, because it let the students get info and experience from more than one source in different regions which makes them more modernized and aware for the science and technology development around the world.
 (4%) 
 
 It was great in general. We had to learn from more than one instructor so we could get the knowledge from various experts from various experiences.
 (4%) 
 
 Its more flexible to have an e-learning course. Also the online quizzes seemed to ensure the independent process of learning. Having multiple instructors for this course is more valuable, but it needs more time with every instructor to have all the benefits of this new experience.

2. 2.What new links have you built with other students and universities in Europe (during visits to Europe or having European Instructors)?

 A lot of contact information was exchanged but for me the highlight was not only meeting all the professors/researchers in class , but the opportunity know what they're working on and follow up their researches on research gate was pretty exciting, kind of broadens your view of what's going on outside their !
 (4%) 
 
 I have not met a single European student. I have only received lectures and on-site tours from European instructors. No special links were built.
 (4%)

3. 3.Do you think that MUREE (course and/or visits to EU) has provided you with extra career potential? If yes, how?

 Certainly, The one week Internship at Rome (Sapienza University) was a true practical experience which I believe prepared me for the market.
 (4%) 
 
 Possibly yes, if the instructors that we visited in EU were genuine in their promises to welcome us for training in the future. Certificates of participation could be of good use for the future as well. However, the experience learned is potentially beneficial for my experience as an engineer.
 (4%) 
 
 yes of course, all the things we learned will be helpful in my future career with all the new technologies i saw their and what we can develop later.
 (4%) 
 
 yes i think , they opened my eyes to new field ,research gates and fields i can work on .
 (4%) 
 
 yes offcourse, the information was detailed and easy to understand. in spain they showed us the labs where they test the pvs, and how they use them, and how they work and showed us several types,and some labs and many things that are useful.
 (4%) 
 
 Yes .. I would like to participate in more events in the renewable matter now .. As I would like to see more systems and different types and study them and maybe create my own. I want to go deeper in muree.
 (4%) 
 
 yes; we have learned a new ideas of renewable energy which doesn't exist here in Jordan.
 (4%) 
 
 It did, one can apply for a masters degree or a training course , and can work with the university at the same time
 (8%) 
 
 yes, because i think that i have seen, experience and learned a lot of valuable information concerning the practical side, which we usually lack in the usual courses, so i think that i have expanded my technical skills through this course and visit which would provide me with a good career potential.
 (4%) 
 
 of course it did, the experience that muree provided in the both sides , yhe practical experience in solar energy, renewable energy, and the cultural experience in exploring a new city was extremely helping to improve my career potentials , also it gave me some ideas that i want to work on in my homeland
 (4%) 
 
 Yes, it helps us to get more experiences about the projects in reality and the way that these projects built on it, and it helps us to know the quantity of knowledge that European have
 (4%) 
 
 Yes, I have gained a more rigid background about renewable energy sources and technologies which is a very hot topic nowadays.
 (4%) 
 
 yes, I have now a good background in Renewable that will help me in my career.
 (4%) 
 
 Yes, MUREE gave me a chance to learn and expand in what I really want to learn about which is renewable energy, I learned very important things in my course and I had a great experience and learned important things about PV through my visit to EU.
 (4%) 
 
 No
 (4%) 
 
 yes,in designing of remote lab experiments in testing and calibration of PV cells
 (4%) 
 
 For the course it’s definitely provided me with extra information about a new topics which will give me an advantage over freshly graduates. also during the EU trip we have learned about using a software called ((PVSOL)) which is a program used for designing PV system and its one of the markets requirements at the present.

 yes Make connections with leading researchers in the ZECOMIX and UNIfHY projects.
 (4%) 
 
 Yes. It exposed us to a different approaches both in learning and culture. I believe that, through that, it improved my adaptability to different environments and different teaching systems which would serve to better my career prospects.
 (4%) 
 
 yes, MUREE course and Europe visit gave us new information about renewable energy and its applications, so we became more awareness for using the renewable energy in our country which might be a revolution in the country since it has big lack of other resources of energy. Because of that the companies would prefer to hire us more than other fresh graduate students.
 (4%) 
 
 Definitely yes, I guess this is the main benefit I gained from this course. It took us one step closer to the real work market and the real projects, that's how.
 (4%) 
 
 The one week Internship at Rome (Sapienza University) was a good chance to discover engineering way of research which I believe give me more passion to start work on my project.

4. 4.What new skills and competencies did you obtain through the use of the labs? (if applicable).

 Unfortunately the remote labs did not work.
 (4%) 
 
 Not applicable.
 (4%) 
 
 how to use the remote labs and the different types of pv cells and how we can solve any problem that can face us.
 (4%) 
 
 We saw the labs and how they work in real life , and we used remote labs but actually the readings were not accurate at all.
 (4%) 
 
 actually the labs wasnt much useful, we knew for example that if the light intensity increase, power increases, but in the labs we tested this at 10% of light internity and then didnt change..the same at 100% of intensity..so its not accurate at all and not reliable
 (4%) 
 
 The concept of controlling the device which is very far away and creating my own testing environment and the possible actions for me to do were pretty great
 (4%) 
 
 ---
 (4%) 
 
 i now have a background of how to test a PV cell
 (8%) 
 
 I can now discover the cracks and the hot spots in the PV modules and decide whether each module is good or not.
 (4%) 
 
 unfortunately, in the day to use the remote labs i had a headache so i couldn't make it to UNID, but through my early trying the remote labs within the course, all i can say is that the chance to make bridge between the traditional way of labs and the modern-tech labs is not an easy thing, but still its a great start on the road!

5. 5.Please feel free to tell us about your experiences, and please give specific examples if possible.

 One of the experiences was practicing the design of a grid connected photovoltaic system for a residential building using PVSOL premium. Another was learning about biomass and the zecomix project, and actually seeing a "prototype" ,also listening to the cons and pros ,the ups and downs faced by the project leaders was insightful. Learning how the Energy crisis is being delt with in Rome and Europe, comparing some data between Jordan and Italy, sharing the policies ..etc was also inspiring and "useful". In summary I can say that after this course my perspective on investing energy has not only "changed" but "matured", especially after visiting a European country and learning about Renewable Energy Technologies in a practical way.
 (4%) 
 
 It has been very interesting. I do not view this as a passing experience for sure. I hope that our universities use this experience to adapt it to our teaching methods and introduce blended learning to all courses. This is how teaching should be done.
 (4%) 
 
 it was a great exprience having a great partners that cooperate with each other and the knowledge we took will be very helpful for me in my future career. remote labs is a great idea to help the students to learn at any place you want. the tour we took around the university about the pc cells tought us alot and the instructors were very helpful and i learned alot from them.
 (4%) 
 
 i believe that they have a massive and wonderful experience in renewable energy but my major problem was the language and sometimes going fast in introducing the slides. like the engineers that came from cyprus we actually took 300+ slides in 3hours and that was a bad experience .
 (4%) 
 
 it was amazing experience, the UNED treated us well, and gave us launch! we traveled madrid and had some great time..and we used the metro to travel to many places and try new things,for example going to the retiro park and trying the boats! it was amazing..and many other things
 (4%) 
 
 The entire trip was an experience actually .. From the university tours to meeting great doctors to learning new stuff in the field of work it was all pretty amazing , site seeing was one of the best learning ways ever .. I also enjoyed the last presentation that took place on Thursday specifically the part where the development is shown .. It was really exciting the way its raising ..

 The welcoming at UNID institute was warm and interesting at the same time, also the idea of making testing devices with low cost was tempting to push the students in the university of Jordan to try it, my idea at remote lab was explained above, and for the rest it surely gave me a push to think in way to immerse the Spanish experience i learned in the middle-eastern experience that i have into a one better understanding for the concept of renewable energy systems and management.

 At first it was a great experience to meet new people from my country with they study in different universities, we all met in a title of renewable energy and learned and had a vast experience and tried new kind of education which is studying online. Some of us had the chance to expand their knowledge and learn very important things by visiting EU and meeting experienced people with high degrees. Thank you MUREE for giving us such an experience.
 (4%) 
 
 This virtual course is very good for me as a student, many material I taked by internet.
 (4%) 
 
 the experiments of remote labs must be more reliable the response of the experiments is slow (maybe due to internet connection) the construction of the experiment is very weak the cameras don't show all sides
 (4%) 
 
 For me I`ve got an idea for my graduation project , during our visit at SAPIENZA university we have learned about using vegetable oil as a fuel in diesel engines and I think it would be very useful if we applied this new technology in our country. Also we have got the opportunity to see a prototype of biomass plant that’s produce hydrogen to use in fuel cells

 In my visit to the EU there were a lot of unexpected developments including the cancelation of our hotel reservation by the time we got there. That among other things improved the way I deal with unforeseen circumstances. Furthermore, I believe that seeing the way tasks are delegated in the EU gave me a better idea of how I like to both manage and work on any future projects I'm involved in.
 (4%) 
 
 i found that MUREE program (course an visit) was very useful for me. Visiting Europe helped me to break the barrier of afraid of dealing with European universities, professors and students. by visiting UNED and Ciemat, we got new ideas of developing education and new labs in Jordan to raise the level of education of using sun energy and its applications.
 (4%) 
 
 Again it was great in general, I'd look further to participate in such projects to gain more knowledge and experience as we did in this project.
 (4%) 
 
 I was pretty exciting to watch a limited-Resources country like Italy - which similar to Jordan on that basis- fighting to cover it's needs from energy via sustainable and local resources. Its my first time to learn deeply about biomass and I think it will be amazing if we could use these technology in our country
