DICTS

Web Management and E-Learning Support

In view of the great significance of the internet in the activities of any university today, it is considered that it would be important to have a unit dedicated to the Development and Maintenance of the internet profile of the University.

Effective use of ICT by learners and teachers is a key driver for TUK’s Academic performance.

Opportunities to engage productively with ICT have a positive impact on attainment through empowering, motivating and engaging learners. New technological advances are revolutionizing the way in which we interact with lessons, how curricula are developed, and the way universities learn and do research. The interactive experience provided by the new technologies enhances student’s awareness of what they are learning, and supports the lecturer in monitoring, assessment and Research. Therefore, selecting, sourcing and implementing the correct technology are vital to successfully improvement of learning outcomes and experiences in the University.
