Online teaching and learning in the Methodist University College has been put on hold following several agitations and challenges that have engulfed the whole process in the College.
Confirming this to #UniversNews, President of the Students’ Representative Council, Shadrach Arnold, said until management resolves those challenges, e-learning can not be continued in the College.
“Management made another directive to continue the e-learning of which the SRC totally isn’t agreeing to because already we have made known some challenges. We need to sort out those challenges before any enrollment can continue. For as it stands now, e-learning has been put on hold until those challenges are sorted out,” he stressed.
He further suggested that the Ministry of Education (MoE) collaborates with the Private University Students Association of Ghana (PUSAG) to enhance e-learning in the private universities.
According to him, all interventions from the Ministry of Education, including e-learning, have benefited only public universities.
“Watching closely the Minister of Education in most of his Interviews, almost all the relief items are been given to the public universities. I believe that with a collaboration with PUSAG, they can enhance e-learning in our private universities,” he said.
Most private universities have been lamenting on the challenges that have hampered e-learning since the virtual teaching and learning module began.
President Akufo-Addo in a televised national address ordered the closure of all educational institutions, both public and private, until further notice, starting from Monday, March 16, 2010, and tasked the Education and Communication Ministries to roll out distance learning protocols for the schools.
