Darul Uloom Online has embraced the module of Outcome-Based Education (OBE), integrating it with the globally recognized framework of Bloom’s Taxonomy. This approach underpins the institution’s commitment to fostering a holistic and student-centered educational experience. To develop its Program Outcomes (POs), the academic council at Darul Uloom Online meticulously designs these outcomes to reflect the core objectives of the various courses offered, particularly in the field of Islamic Studies. The process begins with identifying the essential skills and competencies that students should possess upon completion of their studies. Utilizing Bloom’s Taxonomy, which categorizes cognitive skills across different knowledge dimensions, the council frames Course Outcomes (COs) for each subject. These outcomes encompass both Mandatory Elements, such as Action and Knowledge, ensuring that students achieve practical and theoretical proficiency, and Optional Elements, like Condition and Criteria, which provide additional context and standards for performance. By mapping the POs and COs together, Darul Uloom Online ensures a cohesive and comprehensive educational pathway that aligns with the ultimate goals of OBE. This meticulous alignment guarantees that every aspect of the curriculum, instruction, and assessment is purposefully structured to support students in achieving the defined outcomes. Consequently, the institution not only meets the academic and professional standards but also nurtures the intellectual and personal growth of its students, preparing them to apply their knowledge and skills effectively in real-world contexts. Through this rigorous and thoughtful process, Darul Uloom Online exemplifies its dedication to high-quality education and continuous improvement, firmly grounding its pedagogical strategies in the esteemed principles of Bloom’s Taxonomy and the holistic vision of Outcome-Based Education.
