Uganda Tertiary Institutions To Spearhead ICT Revolution

The Minister for Higher Education, John Chrysostom Muyingo has challenged heads of Tertiary institution to spearhead the use of ICT led innovations. 

Muyingo says tertiary institutions all over the world are offering online courses for continuing education that allows people to work and study simultaneously. 

He, however, says whereas universities in the country have emulated ICT led innovations to create online courses for long distance learners, tertiary intuitions have lagged behind, which affects enrollment.  

Statistics from the Ministry of Education show that students’ enrolment in tertiary institutions stands only at 68, 800 which is 26.6% compared to 162, 229 62.7% for both public and private universities.
