MKU vice chancellor Prof. Stanley Waudo has underscored the importance of ICT in teaching and learning in universities across the Country.
Speaking at Nakuru Campus during the launch of the UNESCO/UNITWIN CHAIR project, Prof Waudo said MKU has fully integrated ICT in its activities among them teaching saying it the move is student centered.
He said MKU’s digital platform consists of both student management system and digital learning system that has modular content.
This means that staff and students do their work electronically while access to web-based learning materials is controlled through passwords. “We are sure we are a model in line with the thematic area of MKU UNESCO-Chair,” the VC said.
He noted that a new consortium network namely, The Kenya UNESCO-CHAIRS Network has been established. “On behalf of MKU Management, I promise to support both the UNESCO/UNITWIN Chair at MKU and the new network of UNESCO Chairs of Kenya,” he said.
He took the opportunity to thank all the other organizations that have joined MKU as partners at the UNESCO Chair project, among them the National Research Fund and the Kenya Prisons Services.
“Last but not least, I also pass my congratulations to all inmates who are beneficiaries of this partnership and encourage joint mobilization of resources to support the activities of the UNESCO Chairs,” said Prof. Waudo.
The Secretary General KNATCOM UNESCO, Dr. Evangeline Njoka and senior members of the partners attended the launch
