200 students selected for KNUST e-learning ambassador training

Two hundred students are participating in a two-week e-learning ambassador training under the e-learning initiative at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, with support from Mastercard Foundation.

The course marks the start of the second group of students.

The training includes modules such as psychology of online learning and portfolio building, e-resources for digital learning and multimedia tools for online learning.

During the opening ceremony, the Principal Investigator, Mr Courage Julius Logah, emphasized the importance of the training to the students.

“With the support of the e-learning initiative, the university continues to build faculty capacity to develop online content so you can continue studying anywhere.

“As many of my colleagues have said, the future is towards e-learning and using digital tools to enhance your education. “What we’re trying to do as a project is give you the diverse skills you need so you can be an effective learner,” he said.

The Vice-Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Prof. Mrs. Rita Akosua Dickson, commended the Mastercard Foundation for the initiative.

“It is important here and now that we are deeply indebted and grateful to our esteemed partners, the Mastercard Foundation, who have been our solid and prominent support in making the transformation of these young people very much possible.

“The training is not only about acquiring technical skills but also about promoting a culture of digital literacy among you, our dear students,” she said.

She also encouraged the students to be disciplined and attentive during the training period.

“To you, my dear students and participants, I urge you to approach the next two weeks with all the enthusiasm and dedication you can muster and embrace this learning opportunity,” she said.

The 200 participants were selected from affiliated nursing schools, the five educational institutions and students of the Mastercard Foundation.
