KNUST students to start switching between online and physical lecture rooms

The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has rolled out a pilot project in three of its colleges as it introduces a shift from the traditional system of teaching to electronic learning.

The e-learning, which is currently being implemented at the Colleges of Arts and Built Environment, Agriculture and Natural Resources and the College of Science, is to help solve congestion problem in lecture halls and aid students to access knowledge and participate in lectures at any place.

A multi-purpose e-learning centre, which was built by the university and inaugurated early this year aided with an update of its ICT policies, and expanded services, is also to assist lecturers to deliver their lecture notes anywhere, including from their homes.

The Dean of International Programmes Office of the university, Prof. William Oduro, announced this at the First National Conference on problem-based learning and E-learning.


It is on the theme: ‘Shifting pedagogical stances towards national development: The impact of problem-based learning/e-learning.’

The project is a collaboration with Aalborg University of Denmark and sponsored by DANIDA.

Prof. Oduro said the new way of teaching, as adopted by advanced countries worldwide, would help students solve problems.
The Pro Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Nii Odai, said the problem-based learning and e-learning was part of the panacea for the unmitigated development of Ghana and Africa.

“Given the profound social and economic challenges Ghana is now experiencing, student-centred education is important and urgent,” he said.
