Students of Pentecost University have commended the University for a successful end of Semester Examinations which was conducted online. In the wake of the Covid-19, the management of the University in consultation with other staff and student leaders piloted online lectures and examination.
As the examinations ended, the Public Relations Office of the University sought the views of students and staff on their experience with the online examinations. While there had been initial reservations, students and staff members seem to have embraced the idea.
Commenting on the issue, Dr. Paul Onyina who is the Dean of Faculty of Business Administration said ‘given the circumstances, the virtual lessons were the most convenient thing to do and we rose to the challenge’. Some students interviewed also expressed satisfaction with the process. They agreed that the virtual lectures and examinations are the new normal with or without Covid-19.
“Being part of students to experience full-blown examinations virtually is a memory I will cherish for long,” a student remarked.
According to the Director of Internal Quality Assurance of the University, Dr. James Atta-Panin, virtual teaching and learning have come to stay. He added that the university would do everything to resolve the challenges.
“The University will undertake series of training and orientation programmes to eliminate the phobia in some of the students and staff in order to improve upon their online learning and teaching experience,” he said. He added that the University would continue to invest in the necessary IT infrastructure and make the platforms for interaction enjoyable.
