The Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) is preparing to teach students from home in case the coronavirus hits Kenya.
The university has directed its lecturers to develop online teaching modules for all courses offered in the current semester just in case there is an outbreak of the Covid-19 which has claimed over 3,800 lives globally.
Nine African countries have confirmed cases of the virus, with Togo and Cameroon the latest entrants on the list.
“I hereby direct all teaching staff to develop online teaching modules for all the units they are teaching this semester so that they can be uploaded to the university academic online platform,” CUEA Vice-Chancellor Stephen Mbugua Ngari said in a notice.
The lecturers have less than two weeks to beat the March 20 deadline for submitting the online teaching material.
“The modules are to be submitted in soft copy to the In-Charge, Blended Programmes section of the university,” said Prof Ngari.
