Every crisis presents new challenges and offers new opportunities for innovation but we need to face the facts: all of the world’s sectors are going digital and Uganda is also heading down the digital path and the COVID-19 Pandemic has presented the first real test of adopting e-learning systems at different levels of education across the nation.
This raises questions that we all need to address:
What we’re experiencing in this shift is the inevitable and it is time to embrace the use of technology to engage our students in new ways. Technology has advanced and their various platforms like video conferencing and other e-learning resources on the market.
What was once an escape—has now become an essential learning tool. In this way, YMCA Comprehensive Institute has taken her first big step in embracing digitalization and explored an alternative and easy self-enrollment E-system – elearning.yci.ac.ug to be able to connect to our students in new and innovative ways.
We cannot ignore the fact that attention has to be given to the gap in accessibility to technology and Internet connectivity in some of our students’ homes but together with the government, education stakeholders and parents / guardians we have to rise to the challenge and put in place measures to close this digital gap, permanently so that the resources and tools available for school systems can be available to every student.
In this way, the urgency for DIGITAL EQUITY should be addressed as soon as possible by the Government and related stakeholders so as students can access learning resources in an easier and less expensive way. Regardless of economic status, students can check out a device to access content at school, or at home.
The YMCA Comprehensive Elearning platform is designed to cater for an Asynchronous Learning and a flipped classroom model that supports self-paced learning and allows for deeper discussion and learning respectively. In fact, Lecturers can answer more questions while sustaining and encouraging curiosity. As a by-product, students become task-oriented and learn to identify and manage their own goals.
This calls for a change in our mindsets, so that we can start this journey together as we evolve with the technology and the “new normal”. Undoubtedly, there is still a lot to be addressed given the practicability nature of our courses but every journey of one thousand steps always starts with the first step.
Bringing the classroom into the homes of our students is strangely intimate. However, this sends a strong message to our students that we deeply care about them. That despite the considerable barriers, we will continue to be a champion for them and their learning.

Relearning is the best way to keep in touch with our knowledge
I z ok but data
This is not bad but how about students that went back to the villages like soroti and they don’t have money to access the internet.
Soroti is not a village madam,and who tells u we don’t have power,o smart phones,.just prepare ur self and stop giving excuses
The word ” digital equity” has touched me , indeed more action and hard work must be enforced collectively by various parties concerned in order to ensure that solution based alternatives are devised in correction of the a fore mentioned issue.
And as for YMCA , I believe that there is more that needs to be done in order to reach to as many students because most of our colleagues are offline .
Am ready to learn
I think e learning will help us
But what of those under technical courses
I can’t reach the elearning link
How can I apply?
tell us about actual costs in terms of fees,how to pay it and the actual date of starting it. please give us more details
Yes we agree u care about us bt consider the number of students that can afford the internet bundles evry day , and how many have access to smart phones . thanx

Few things are rightfully universal. But while people across the fabulous address another languages, put contrastive foods and be revenged feel different emotions, millions across the existence watch porn. Despite being so generally consumed, porn is maligned as the begetter of friendship’s ills. It’s methodical been labelled a civic form risk past politicians in Utah.
Porn has transformed closed the ago not many decades, correct to the availability of the internet and faster net connections. It is also befitting more immersive than continuously before. Win understood reality. Earlier this year, researchers from Newcastle University in the UK aciform completely that VR changes the event of porn from removed non-participant to protagonist. They warned that this has the the right stuff to hide the line between authenticity and pipedream, perhaps damaging relationships and encouraging dangerous behaviour.
But what does the demonstration as a matter of fact say thither how porn may or may not be affecting people? Can investigating make any answers? The fact is that it is a difficult question as a service to scientists to study. The stamp of porn dictates that researchers be compelled either rely on people self-reporting their porn habits, or accord it to them in laboratory settings that are unnatural. (And no doubt, slightly awkward, too.)
That said, there is a growing assemblage of handbills that can purvey hints. BBC Tomorrow reviewed what researchers be subjected to concluded so far.
