The University of The Gambia has reopened for the first semester of the 2020/2021 academic year with lectures beginning online.
This is because the coronavirus pandemic has so far made it impossible to hold face-to-face lectures in various campuses of the university.
Some of the general and divisional requirement courses at the University of The Gambia had more than100 students at any given time.
Holding lectures under such overcrowded classrooms is no longer feasible because it is impossible for students and lecturers to physically distance.
As a result, lectures for the first month are being held completely online, but this will not come without challenges.
According to Professor Gomez, the deputy vice chancellor of the University of The Gambia, said the UTG has put in mechanisms to facilitate the smooth running of the online classes by providing internet bundles to registered students.
