The stance of SRCs on E-learning and matters arising

546
The SRC comes to you with warm greetings. At this time of Global pandemic, we hope you are in good health and also observing all precautionary measures to the latter.
 
Leaderships of the three i.e Kumasi, Mampong and Ajumako campuses of the University wish to communicate this important message to the students of same. Carefully read this message and strongly adhere to it. It has become very necessary to take the bull by its horns. 
 
On Sunday, 29th March, 2020, Management launched the LMS to ensure the continuous delivery of lecture by lecturers online to students. It is worth noting that prior to this, the SRCs had requested a meeting with stakeholders to objectively evaluate all possible concerns, however, management did not honour it.
 
Since the inception of the LMS, Leadership has critically examined the faults with the online learning system and have closely monitored concerns raised by students. Amongst such are: lack of Data bundle to access the platform, some courses cannot be studied under the online model chosen by Management e.g learning calculus by an audio lecture etc., students at remote areas without internet cannot access the system, students with disability have been neglected entirely in this regard and issues about project work by final year students.etc.
 
Aside the technical challenges with the system coupled with the above non exhaustive list of concerns by students, the least anybody will do is to schedule quizzes, assignments and presentations online for assessment with strict deadlines. We see this move by Management as inhumane especially during this time of global sorrow.
 
We want to reiterate our stance as communicated to Management that we are against the system since after two weeks of trial, the same problems exist at increasing levels. 
 
We are by this notice sounding a caution to all students to STOP all processes of registration and enrolling onto the platform and DISREGARD all information about the online system from Management until further notice. Ultimately, until all the issues brought to the attention of Management of UEW is resolved in the best interest of students.
