The Director of the University of Dar es Salaam's (UDSM) Centre for Visual Learning, Dr Hashim Twaakyondo, explains that the tele-education initiative is a result of collaboration with three Indian Universities, namely: Amity University, Indira Gandhi University and the University of Madras, which provide live lectures for students in Africa.
"It is interactive in nature, and the students are able to pose questions to the lecturers directly.
They interact with their peers from universities in other African countries, such as Ghana, Rwanda, Uganda and Nigeria which offer similar programmes," Twaakyondo says.
The programme, which was launched at UDSM
in 2010, is apparently already yielding positive results.
"The first intake consisted of 80 students who enrolled in a Master's Programme two years ago.
They are expected to complete their studies this year.
There is also another intake of around 70 students pursuing undergraduate programmes," says Twaakyondo
explains that the Centre for Visual Learning
, which is part of the College of ICT at UDSM
, is embarking on mobilising more resources to enable more Tanzanians to benefit from the latest learning and teaching technology offered by this programme.
