Specialist for Health Education & E-Learning

 

The global impact of Covid19 has shown how important it is that we rethink the way we learn. It is becoming more important to be able to work and study from home. In Kenya, the potential benefits of e-learning options are made even more important by the additional challenges of economic hardship, quality of teaching, transportation problems, and the lack of educational opportunities for millions of young men and women.

Since 2007, the Kenya School for Integrated Medicine has used traditional learning methods (face-to-face teaching) in its learning programs. The school has now recognized the need to provide a more blended learning experience to meet the needs and aspirations of students, local communities, and the country at large. The College has decided that e-learning will become an important component of the instructional program that will enhance the quality of learning and allow for the expansion of the student community. A comprehensive e-learning concept will be developed based on which an e-learning platform will then be established, and e-learning programs will be developed.
