Published

By Arthur Moses Opio and Gilbert Nsanzimana

Makerere University as one of the leading universities in Africa prioritizes ICT to deliver high quality education services.

According to our ICT policy, on the issue of ICT skills capacity building policy, it says:

The adoption of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products and tools will require the attendant training to enable effective usage

DICTS is mandated to;

  1. Coordinate the periodic assessment of existing ICT skills capacity amongst all user groups to be able to identify gaps in partnership with Heads of Departments.
  2. Undertake a periodic capacity skills assessment to identify knowledge gaps within its technical staff to be able to seek appropriate capacity building programs.

Digital literacy refers to the technical skills needed to live, learn and work in environments where information is mainly accessed through digital facilities.

Worldwide research indicates that using ICT in education can lead to improved learning and better teaching methods. Services such as e-learning facilitate learning without time or place limitations making it much easier for learners and teachers.

During the month of February 2022, DICTS in collaboration with the University management, has been conducting a digital literacy program aimed at bridging the digital gaps amongst the student and staff community.

The program focused on the different ICT services offered by the university including the students and staff portals , university mailing system, the e-learning platform (MUELE), e-library, internet services among others.
