By ProssyTulinomubezi


Twenty six students of Makerere University College of Computing and Information Sciences have been selected to participate in Vision Group content digitalization projects starting Thursday June 11, 2015.

While addressing internees who are to take part at the College of Computing and Information Sciences, Mr.Linus Wamanya said Vision Group needs a jobs auto for online positing of jobs and recruitment of workers, an online system for booking and monitoring of advertisements and an online farmers system.

“We need to establish a jobs auto, an online system for easy booking and monitoring of advertisements. Given the fact that our target audiences have different tastes and preferences, we need different platforms so that they are in position to selectively access information,” said Wamanya.
He adds that, in case a client needs their advertisements to be run on different outlets of vision group, with an online system, there will be no need call the media outlets to find out in advertisements were run.

Hugh Cameron a visiting professor and head Center for Innovations and Professional Skills Development at the College unfolded the college’s target projects in his remarks to the internees.

“We can create a website for information and articles online for production and access to more content. This will stimulate public commentaries and reduce the costs of printing,” Cameron said.

Cameron also adds that a combined web portal for Vision Group publications is also part of the college’s projects. This will enable users to search for content online by use of keyword, author’s name, dates of publication, and media outlet among others.

In a separate interview with some of the students, they expect to implement and learn more skills since Vision Group has given them a golden opportunity to put their acquired skills in practice.

“This practice will increase on my experience, interpersonal, communication skills and will get access to new technologies. I will also contribute to the institution since I have experience in website applications development and well conversant with the technologies I use,” said Jackson Sinamanye, a finalist of software engineering.
Namuddu Gloria a records and archives management student was also excited about reading and learning more about software designing and management.

This practice will generally enable students become useful in the real world since it’s a learning process that can make permanent changes in individual lives.
