Uganda Christian University (UCU) has confirmed that they will be conducting examination amid COVID 19. UCU vice chancellor, Associate Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi confirmed that the examinations will commence on 15th September 2020. This has been so after the National Council for Higher education permitted the University to go ahead with online learning.
Prof. Mushengyezi says they will reach all students in their different areas. He encourages the students to prepare for the forthcoming examinations.
On the issue of access to the online education, the deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Academic Affairs, Dr. John Kitayimbwa said 92% of the students own smartphones and 90% own laptops. He adds that this online education will be free to all students. UCU has reached a consensus with one of the telecom networks in regards to data.
The University confirmed that they will be delivering examination materials to the homes of their students and even encouraged those living upcountry to call in to make sure they get the materials required.
This can be a very good start to adapt to e learning in Uganda. It’s very convenient and saves a lot time. The challenge however is how to help students who have no access to smartphones and laptops.
The ministry of education can work hand in hand with the government. This will enable every student afford these materials so that education is taken to another level.
