This was a first for Justice Oscar Angote!
If it were normal times he would be at the parklands campus for his final end of semester exams-instead he had to write his exams right from his office at the Machakos law courts.
“Although it was exam day, I had never felt so comfortable- I was going to after all sit for my exams in office immediately after I was done with work.” said Justice Angote.
“As a public servant and student at the same time this is the best thing that the university could ever do for us. I hope this mode of teaching and examinations can become the norm even after covid-19.”
Justice Angote heaped praised on director CASELAP Dr. Odote, the ICT team and the entire university management for helping students’ complete studies online amid challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a meeting chaired by Vice Chancelor Prof. Stephen Kiama, the Senate approved guidelines and procedures for online examinations on 8th May 2020. The University had in March adopted e-learning following government’s ban on meetings and congregations to check the spread of the virus.
More than 5,564 online class sessions were held across different schools and faculties before the onset of online examinations.
