Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has inaugurated a state-of-the-art facility to meet its e-learning needs.
The centre, equipped with 23 studios for live and pre-recorded lessons, is the first of its kind to be set up by a tertiary institution in Ghana and is intended to support digital education.

At the inaugural ceremony in Kumasi, Prof. Ellis Owusu-Dabo, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, who represented the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Mrs. Rita Akosua Dickson, said the University was focused on standardizing its activities academics, using information and communication technologies (ICT).
“In fact, the pandemic has taught us that we need to build systems and infrastructures that will make us resilient to future shocks and challenges of physical interaction,” he said.
There could not have been a better time to upgrade the state-of-the-art facility than now, when the University was determined to spearhead Ghana’s educational advancements in the digital age, said Professor Owusu- Dabo.
He said the University has, over the years, invested significantly in modernizing its academic infrastructure as it strives to revolutionize higher education in the country.
Professor Eric Apau Asante, director of the e-learning center, said the inauguration was among activities marking the “KNUST e-learning week”, which saw staff, students and stakeholders take part to several webinar sessions.
This, he said, has educated staff and students on using the resources of the “VClass” library for effective online learning, content creation, online assessment strategies and disabled access for e-learning.
It also served as a platform to re-examine online teaching and learning through student-led discussions and the creation of educational connections with technology.

The Ghana News Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana’s independence and tasked with the “dissemination of truthful and unbiased information”. It was the first news agency to be established in sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of an overall communications policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united, and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore played the unique role of mobilizing citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
