Online academic activities at the University of Ghana will continue until the end of the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic year as the Business and Executive Committee of the Academic Board has endorsed it.
The university will also conduct its end-of-semester exams online.
The university’s Sakai Learning Management System, other online resources and emails have been approved as the examination centres.
In view of that, it has revised the academic calendar for the rest of the semester.
There will be seven weeks of online teaching and learning, starting from Tuesday, April 14 to Friday, May 29.
Students will have from Monday June 1 to Friday June 5 to revise their notes ahead of the start of the examination.
Examination for full-time students has been scheduled for Monday June 8 – Friday, July 3, 2020.
The deadline for the submission of Graduate These has also been extended.
The March 31 deadline has been extended to July 31 and the July 31 deadline also extended to October 30.
Management of the University says that it will announce the re-opening date for the 2020/2021 academic year in due course
This decision by University Management comes despite protests from students about the use of online modes for academic work.
The students believe that the move will leave some of their colleagues, especially those in areas with poor internet connectivity, at a disadvantage.
