UTAMU Intensifies Online Learning despite COVID 19 Pandemic
Despite the COVID – 19 pandemic, UTAMU is growing stronger than ever thanks to its excellent and efficient eLearning platform. Teaching and learning is ongoing purely online for the newly admitted students of May 2020 Intake.
“We are keeping our doors of learning open despite this surge of COVID-19,” says Prof. Sadiq Yusuf, the Vice Chancellor of Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU).
“UTAMU has an established and robust eLearning system that allows distance / online teaching and learning but also we have experienced academic staff and an IT team competent enough to ensure quality online learning.”
UTAMU is the only university in Uganda that has successfully infused the teaching and learning processes with appropriate information and communications technologies.
From our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, professional short courses to signature free personal development courses, UTAMU offers excellent all-round educational experience for learners from all walks of life.
Speaking to the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. JWF Muwanga-Zake, the Deputy Vice Chancellor and Dean, School of Computing & Engineering at UTAMU, the university is currently running modular basis teaching and learning which allows students to study freely.
“The advantage of modular basis teaching and learning is that one can start a module anytime and complete it anytime.”
He further commended UTAMU staff for working virtually to ensure education continues regardless of the effects of COVID on the education system.
All UTAMU academic programmes are fully developed as e-learning modules designed to transform a student’s intellect and career prospects through experiential learning activities and digital technologies.
The University is still receiving students for the MAY 2020 Intake as well as September 2020 Intake.
