Due Diligence Study
Cyber School carried out a Due Diligence Study with the purpose of ensuring that the project is progressing according to the objectives and plans drawn and that
conditions of operation have not changed. The study was carried out using a questionnaire and was followed up with a focus group discussion on 25th May 2023 that brought together:
The Deputy Vice Chancellors
Deans of Faculties
Quality Assurance Officer
E Learning Administrator
Cyber School Staff
Development of a Short Course on Entrepreneurship
Under the Work Readiness theme, Cyber School has developed a short course on entrepreneurship which will be available to students and staff via our LMS (BUOLE). The draft course was shared with a few staff that gave their input and was then discussed and validated by students. At Busitema University, this discussion was held on 8th & 9th June 2023 with a few students from the Faculty of Agriculture and Animal Sciences (Arapai). Feedback from the students is being used to finalize the course which will then be uploaded onto our LMS.
Learning Management System Assessment and Evaluation
One of the interventions in this project is the enhancement of the Busitema University Online Learning Environment (BUOLE). On 17th February, 2023 a team from Cyber School visited Busitema University to assess LMS and its associated infrastructure so as to establish what would be needed to enhance the system and to support the University to ensure the enhanced system is effectively utilized. This was followed by an upgrade of BUOLE which took place from 18th – 24th June 2023. The team at Cyber School at Busitema University is going through the upgraded system to ensure all information is reflected in the new version. Subsequent training of staff and students will now be based on the enhanced BUOLE and it is expected that this will provide a platform for more robust and versatile courses.
Training of LMS Administrators
As a strategy for effective utilization of the LMS, a training of LMS administrators, a training was carried out on 27th & 28th June 2023.The Training was carried out by staff of Cyber School Technology Solutions. The training covered:
