“The government has made it a policy that the institutions of higher learning become hubs for innovation,” said Min Muswere.
“I was informed that over 3700 students used the virtual learning system to continue learning and sit for examinations at the height of the Covid-19 induced lockdowns.
“I therefore urge institutions of learning to adopt the iMPACT learning platform so that students can continue with their classes remotely,” said Minister Muswere.
