MOBILEBy BiztechAfrica - Oct. 8, 2012, 3:39 p.m.
Ghana’s GTUC will distribute its own brand of tablet PC to students, to facilitate learning.
The tablet PC, dubbed the Campus Companion, is a 10 inch Android tablet PC manufactured by UK company The Learning Nuggets Company Limited (LNC). LNC says its new tablet PCs have been launched for educational institutions in Nigeria and Ghana, and have been designed to deliver a comprehensive portfolio of learning resources.
The Ghana Technology University College (GTUC), formerly Ghana Telecom University College, will distribute a branded version of Campus Companion® Starlight™ model tablet to its postgraduate students.
Aside from the basic features it will enable lecturers to deliver online courses and provide pre-learning, in-learning and post-learning content from preparation through to learning reinforcement. Campus Companion will also be integrated with aspects of the GTUC administration system.
Diana Dwamena, CEO of LNC, says to engage learners for lengthy periods of time in online activities we need to deliver the right learning interfaces. We believe the 10 inch screens facilitates online learning using multimedia and video-based learning content better than smaller screens.
Dr Osei K Darkwa, President of the GTUC, said the tablet, branded the GTUC Campus Companion, would enable lecturers to deliver online courses and provide pre-learning, in-learning and post-learning content from preparation through to learning reinforcement.
