The Arabic curriculum on this site was developed by LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) Arabic Team through the QFI (Qatar Foundation International) curriculum grant awarded 2012-2013. The curriculum included twelve units (6 units for Arabic level 1, and 6 units for Arabic Level 2). The project aimed at creating a hybrid module that compliments and supplements face to face instructions in LAUSD's schools. The course was built using Moodle (a Course/ Learning Management System) creating an effective online learning forum that LAUSD's teachers can use to expand on students skills and knowledge beyond school hours.
