Prof. Opoku-Amankwa explained that in addition to the iCampus platform, “we are also creating an online parallel learning system to ensure that eventually, every class in this country from the lower primary to the SHS had an online parallel classroom.”
He said the online parallel classroom allowed the setting up of a learning space for students and teachers such that all the lessons teachers were teaching in the classroom were also available online.
“This connects to all the learning resources with the Ghana Library Authority and so when students get online, they are able to immediately get access to all the contents with the Ghana Library Authority,” Prof. Opoku-Amankwa explained.
Announcement by Minister
Last week Tuesday, the Ministry of Education announced that it had started the implementation of distance and remote learning programmes to enable students to have access to learning resources while at home in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The sector Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, said the learning programmes would be rolled out on all mediums — radio, television and online — with support from the Ministry of Communications and the Ministry of Information.
