University of Plovdiv Paisii Hilendarski (BULGARIA)
Many Jordan universities and institutions of higher education have recognized the value of the Internet in changing the way people learn. Traditional classroom courses can be augmented with interactive materials on the Web and old fashioned distance learning courses can be transformed from correspondence courses or television lectures into e-learning environments.

However, few Jordan institutions have been able to embrace e-learning in a way that enables widespread innovative uses of learning technology throughout the institution. Instead, many rely on individual faculty or departments to make their own decisions about how to implement an e-learning environment that best suits their needs. The result is a hybrid of incompatible solutions that make it difficult for faculty to share their work.

This paper presents our work within the mEQUITY project. This project aims development of an adaptive curriculum in education that is based on digital learning resources for mobile devices and responds to the requirements for modernization and accessibility of the Jordanian high education system to improve the educational integration of disadvantaged learners in the educational system - groups in risk whose special needs or socioeconomic status significantly restrict their ability for adequate education. Preliminary training of Jordan teachers to use mobile technologies in education was carried out in Plovdiv University. This training was organized with different groups of teachers. Different plan-scenarios of implementation and learning process organization in which QR codes and mobile technologies are prepared.
