Embracing Technology: Insights Gained From Teaching an Electrical and Electronics Engineering Class Online

Following the approval and the commencement of the May-August 2020 Semester by the University Senate and Management Board, a lot of readjustments have been done to equip the University Community for successful implementation of the online classes especially for the technical courses. In light of the Corona Virus Pandemic, the need to embrace technology is now greater than ever.

Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology prides itself in being a Trendsetter in Research, innovation and Entrepreneurship and the University Management has spearheaded the efforts to make online learning effortless and seamless for both the lecturers and students. This has been achieved through training of lecturers and tutorial fellows on how to use web conferencing tools, enabling the lecturers and tutorial fellows to have access to the academic offices so they can access free internet within the university, the provision of Telcom sim cards loaded with 30GB internet bundles monthly for lecturers and the partnership between JKUAT, KENET, Telcom, Safaricom, and Airtel which has enabled students to access subsidized bundles.

Watch the video below to get insights from our staff and students on how this mode of study previously reserved for courses under the School of Open, Distance, and e-learning (SODEL) has been successfully implemented to teach the theoretical aspects of an Electrical and Electronics Engineering class.
