Mr. Joseph Semwogerere, the E-learning Coordinator at Makerere University, lauded the Tele-Education programme which was sponsored under the Pan-African eNetwork project. €œThis project has not only shown the power of harnessing ICTs in promoting education but it has also enabled several people obtain international degrees at reasonable prices. The students only pay operational costs and are provided with learning materials from one of the best universities in the world,€ he added.
