Setting up eLearning Programmes at Higher Educational Institutions
Dr. Ebenezer Malcalm
Starting Wednesday 3 June and ending Friday 5 June Dr. Ebenezer Malcalm from the University of Professional Studies, Accra, Ghana (UPSA) will lead this three day mini seminar on the challenges of setting up an eLearning Programme for professional studies in higher educational institutions.
It is recognized that ICT, can help address a number of challenges present in the Higher Educational sector such as the provision of appropriate ICT facilities (infrastructure, skilled human resources, content etc.) and can significantly address issues related to quality, access and management
The Ghana Education Reforms launched in June 2007 call for the introduction of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) at both Senior High Schools at Higher Educational Institutions. Many Higher Educational institutions have introduced Distance Learning Programmes. One of such Institutions is University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).
UPSA is in process of introducing blended learning. Developing online learning materials is a daunting task. The webinar and the concurrent forum discussions will take participants through how to put in place a formidable system to develop online course materials for the learners and how to set up an online learning system.
