The advent of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has made learning so much easier and more convenient - qualities that the Namibia University of Science and Technology strives to offer its students. In another first for the Namibia University of Science and Technology, the Centre for Open and Lifelong Learning (COLL) recently launched its first fully-fledged eLearning courses.
eLearning is just another way of studying, but instead of being face-to-face with a lecturer or tutor or studying alone at home with your study guide, you are provided with a virtual classroom via a networked computer. This means you can study anywhere and at any time, which is a real plus for those students who have a busy schedule. At the Namibia University of Science and Technology, eLearning is a paced week-by-week way of studying cooperatively with your tutor and fellow students by means of a virtual classroom that provides a variety of technology enhanced learning tools such as electronic text, images, animations, streaming video and audio.
