Involve Student Leaders in Developing E-Learning Platform – USAG advises

The University Students’ Association of Ghana (USAG) is asking the government to involve students in the creation of a common platform for e-learning for all universities.

USAG earlier in May called on the government to help streamline various e-learning programmes in the country as a way of resolving the numerous challenges students face in an attempt to benefit from such initiatives.

Speaking to Citi News, the USAG’s Press and Information Secretary, Kwadwo Yeboah Murdoch, said although the Ministry of Education has come up with a draft proposal to develop a cloud base platform, it is necessary that students are involved in the process.

“What we are putting across is that the government should involve student leaders because we directly deal with the students. They should get us involved in implementing the common platform for all the university so we can send it to our constituents thus the SRC and [other] leaders so they can give feedback on making it better.”

USAG earlier concerns
Since the president’s directive to shut down schools as a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus, the University Students’ Association of Ghana (USAG) has made several appeals with regards to ensure efficient and effective platforms to aid students in the teaching and learning process.

USAG earlier called on the government to help streamline the various e-learning programmes in the country as a way of resolving the numerous challenges students are faced with while attempting to benefit from such programmes.

The association explained that telecommunication networks should be integrated into plans for the rollout of e-learning platforms for students, indicating that this will help to resolve the challenges associated with network connectivity in certain geographical areas.

Also, they entreated the government to disburse students’ loans to help cushion students especially because the funds have always been the backbone of university students amid financial constraints.

Online platforms for universities
The Minister of Education, Matthew Opoku Prempeh announced collaborative efforts with UNESCO to make platforms available for students to acquire knowledge despite the closure of schools in the country.

This comes after the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo directed schools in the country to shut down effective Monday, March 16, 2020.

“All Universities, Senior High Schools, and basic schools, i.e. public and private schools, will be closed Monday, 16th March 2020, till further notice. The Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the Ministry of Communication, has been tasked to roll out distance learning programmes,” he said.
