UG offering 1000 on-line courses

THE University of Guyana (UG) has reported that it is now offering more than 1,000 courses online, as part of its “Blueprint 2040” strategy framework, and sees the public statement, “UWI Going to Guyana” not as a national policy statement but rather one of “grand intention”.

The University has said in a statement that it is currently in preliminary talks with the Government of Guyana on the matter of Online education and scholarships under the programme at reference.

“The national university has not ceded its mandate and responsibilities, and UG is now offering more than 1,000 courses Online as part of ‘The University of Guyana Blueprint 2040’ strategy framework,” the university said, adding:

“UG also routinely collaborates with over 100 regional and international institutions, and recognises the undoubted scope for and benefits of a variety of higher education players in the national space.

“The university, therefore, continues to assist in ensuring these matters are approached strategically, inclusively and synergistically.”

At 57-year-old learning institution, perhaps the country’s oldest to date, was founded in 1963 before independence, and not only has the distinction of being the embodiment of a nation’s promise, but will continue to work towards fulfilling that promise with all progressive entities in the best interest of the university, faculty, students and people of the beloved country.
