Meanwhile the academic registrar Mr. Mwinganiza Godfrey revealed that the Institute also has digital learning systems that enable students to continue learning even when they are off-campus. This reduces congestion and physical contact.

We have an e-learning platform which is populated with notes, video tutorials, and assignments. We also have an e-library that enables students to access a wealth of information anytime, anywhere. “ He added that capacity building for trainers has been done and they are able to effectively interact with digital systems.
