President of the Students Representative Council at the University of Development Studies Nyankpala campus, Christopher Otoo, says new projects would be carried out early in the next trimester before their tenure of office ends.
He has stuck the delay in implementing the projects on the coronavirus pandemic and inadequate funding.
Among other things, the SRC will see to it that enough routers are provided in the halls of residence to boost the Wi-Fi’s performance, he said.
Hence, “we are liaising with management to provide Wi-Fi in the various traditional halls because we’ve realized that next trimester studies will be partly online so this would help students join online classes from the comfort of their rooms.”
“We’re also working on roads on our campus, sign posts which would ease navigation on campus and also curb water problems by creating big reservoirs at the traditional halls to store water for the dry season,” he added.
He described the just ended trimester as successful, citing students’ cooperation and adherence to COVID-19 protocols as some reasons.
Christopher Otoo recounted that using the face-to-face mode of teaching and learning helped to improve the academic performance of students.
As observed elsewhere in the country, students of the Institution faced network challenges with the online learning program, a situation that called for a quick transition from that module to the face-to-face, on-site learning.
