The Chairman of the Mass Communication Department of the University of Liberia, Assistant Professor Euriahs Togar is providing technical support through capacity building to faculty members of the university’s College of Social Sciences and Humanities, Liberia College.
Chairman Togar, who is also Liberia College’s Technology Focal person, trained faculties, including other chairpersons in the college, how to ‘Moodle’ their classes online, with additional training in how to use Zoom for online lectures. The week long training, which brought together chairpersons, instructors and professors of Liberia College, is part of capacity building effort as the school prepares to reopen using eLearning in few weeks. This will be the University of Liberia’s first ever e-Learning or Long Distance Learning, which aligns with the university’s strategic vision.
The Netherlands trained Business Communication and Digital Media expert believes as the university moves to a new technology-oriented university, it is important for faculties of the college to continue to engage in requisite training that go with the wind of change.
“Our soon-to-be technology-oriented University of Liberia expects all of its employees to be technology savvy in these COVID-19 days, ready and willing to use new Information Communication Technology tools to achieve the institution’s learning goals.”
Meanwhile, the Mass Communication Department of the University of Liberia has launched series of awareness messages as its contribution to the national fight against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
