Prof. Emmanuel Karooro, the Ibanda University Vice Chancellor said that the university administration has contacted the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) with the intention of introducing E-Learning during covid-19 scourge
Prof. Karooro revealed this while opening an E-Learning workshop that attracted lectures from various universities at the University Board Room yesterday Saturday
“Let us embrace the new technology with E-Learning from the old system to access online teaching on internet, smart phones and laptop with enough study materials to complement on line teaching,” Prof. Karooro said.
He added that many students all over the world need not to sit in the class rooms, but only do their examinations using E-Learning and they pass well.
“I will sensitize all teaching staff and students to embrace the programme while students report with smart phones and laptops to avoid this backlog,” Prof. Karooro adds.
The Chairman Board of Governors Mr. Jeeb Rwomushana who is one of the University directors thanked the management for introducing the E-Learning program technology.
He however expressed concern over how some of the students live in areas where telecom network is a problem which will make it difficult to them to access the programme.
