Winneba University of Education to be put on-line


Dunkwa-on-Offin (C/R), June 06, GNA - Mr Kwasi Adu-Gyan, a Director at the Ministry of Communications, has said the ministry was collaborating with the Ministry of Education and Sports to put the Winneba University of Education on-line.

This will enable the university to broadcast its academic programmes on-line and speed up the academic work of its students pursuing distance-learning programmes.

The project will be undertaken through the Africa Virtual University and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD)/Electronic (E)-Schools Initiative.

Mr Adu-Gyan said this at a ceremony on Saturday at which Nana Amoako, the Member of Parliament for Upper Denkyira East, presented five computers and their accessories worth 10 million cedis to the Dunkwa Secondary-Technical School.

He said the Communications Ministry had started establishing a community information centre in each of the 230 constituencies and 62 would be commissioned within the next three months.

The centres would be equipped with ICT centres and hooked to the Internet.

Nana Amoako said he would liaise with the appropriate authorities to get the school upgraded to a model one. Mr Samuel Tetteh, the Headmaster of the school, thanked the MP for the donation.
