National Council for Higher Education (NCHE), a body mandated to regulate the
provision and conduct of Higher Education in Uganda, is desirous of
implementing an emergency Open, Distance e-Learning(ODeL) system for enabling
the Higher Education training institutions to offer teaching and learning
during the current lockdown. The system is globally recognized as a worthy
mechanism for flexible learning because it avails numerous benefits as a
teaching and learning system by focusing on learners, and provides for continuous
engagements between the instructor and learners as and when is desirable.
The NCHE therefore has developed
guidelines for aiding HEIs to resume their teaching and learning activities remotely,
since students and lecturers can be able to interact without necessarily coming
into contact, during the lockdown. Attached is a detailed copy of the guidelines.
