SUBJECT: Hooking-up to an Online Platform to Lecture and Interact with Students.
Following the various steps taken to manage the operations of the University in this era of uncertainty, all teaching staff (fulltime and part-time) are directed to contact the Acting Director of ICT and get hooked-up to an online platform.
This is in response to the directive from the Ministry of Education, that virtual teaching and learning should be strongly adopted as students remain at home. A number of support systems have been deployed by the Ministry in collaboration with internet service providers to ensure the sustainability of this arrangement.
Deans/Directors and Heads of Department are enjoined to get all teaching staff involved in this exercise.
It is important to state that this mode of delivery would continue even when the COVID-19 situation is abated and the system normalizes for students to return.
The Acting Director of ICT would roll out a time-table to train staff on this arrangement by Monday, 30th March 2020.
The Vice-Chancellor and his team looks forward to seeing every teaching staff using this system within the next couple days.
