Corona Virus (COVID 19) has over-turned very one’s daily routine in Uganda and the world atlarge. It is high time we changed our timetables and activities to fit in the situation but also stay safe from this pandemic.
As a way of curbing the spread of COVID 19, the Uganda government ordered a shut down of all schools, Universities and other institutions.
This really put a toll on most teachers because it was on a short notice yet the study term was just a month to its end.
Therefore, many students went home without study material to guide them to study from home. This should be an eye opener to all the stake holders to re-think digital.
