University students get free tablets

08 September 2014, 16:29 Daisy Onkoba

Nairobi - Kenyatta University issued free tablets to first year students Thursday with an aim of increasing access to higher education through cutting-edge technology.

Vice Chancellor Professor, Olive Mugenda, said the use of tablets will encourage learning experiences outside a teacher managed classroom environment.

She added that this would provide a wider array of e-resources while encouraging collaborative learning and timely communication through chat platforms and online forums.

“As part of the institution’s initiative to facilitate digital instruction delivery, we envisaged to make teaching and learning more interactive between learners and lecturers by the use of video and animation among others,” she said.

Speaking during the event, Director of e-learning David Nzuki said research shows that mobile technologies provide an excellent medium for extending educational opportunities to learners who may not have access to high-quality education.

Nzuki added that mobile devices are easily portable by their users and highly customizable hence allows for proactive engagement between students and lecturers in using the analytic learning tools as well as interacting through offline and online forums and messaging.
