Makerere University Suspends Online Exams As MUELE Platform Crushes

Makerere University has suspended online exams after the mode of examining crushed further than expected. The Makerere University Electronic Learning Environment (MUELE) is the mode the university intended to use in the assessment of the students.

During a survey they conducted over the weekend, there are technical glitches that authorities think might affect students.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic Affairs) at the university, Prof. Umar Kakumba confirmed the suspension in a statement.

He said the intended mode of examination needed further polishing, thus the postponement of the exams. They postponed them to at least 20th September.

They will conduct them following the Alternative Assessment Modalities as approved by the University Senate and Council.

Directorate for ICT Support (DICTS) failed to iron out the faults in MUELE, a system used to teach and assess the students.

This prompted the university management to raise a red flag hence postponing the exams to Next week on 20th.

‘’The purpose of this communication is to halt the administering of real-time online (live) quiz-based examinations for one week (13 to 19 September 2021). This is so as to give DICTS time to sort out all pending failure points that are making MUELE unable to support large student numbers for real-time (live) examinations,’’ the statement partly read.
