Since 2015, the Jordanian Ministry of Education (MoE) has “established 198 double shifted schools and hired nearly 6,000 additional teachers” to accommodate for the influx of Syrian refugee learners in the country. By offering a comprehensive, reliable and transparent method of collecting and disseminating data, OpenEMIS has enabled teachers and administrators to shift away from manual registration processes which has lead to an increase in efficiency and effectiveness of national education data collection. In this regard, OpenEMIS empowers administrators, policymakers, and stakeholders to make data-driven decisions, create updated education policy and develop national programmes aimed at aligning the education sector with the needs of the labour market.
