The World Wide Web has become a common means to openly share
instructional content on a worldwide level. The purpose of KFUPM open
courseware is to showcase course material used in the courses of the
university to demonstrate KFUPM educational culture and to be part of the
global interactions in the open sharing of educational material.
The courses on this site are categorized in terms of the academic
disciplines in which university offers its academic programs. The site
currently includes sample courses and more courses will be added to the
site with time. We hope that you will find the available resources useful
whether you are a student or an educator.
