A UNIVERSITY of Portsmouth PhD student researching e-learning has won Best Paper at a conference in Texas.

Rashid Khan won for his paper on students’ perception of the quality of IT courses.

He presented his paper at the International Academy of Business and Public Administration Disciplines Conference in Dallas, Texas.

Mr Khan is a lecturer at Dammam Community College, part of King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in Saudi Arabia. His PhD focuses on the adoption of, and barriers to, e-learning in Saudi Arabia.

Computing lecturer Dr Kate Dingley said: ‘This is exceptional progress for any student in the first year of a PhD, but is even more remarkable for someone who is working full-time alongside studying part-time.’
