NCHE’s letter to Victoria University

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of schools, universities and colleges.

Most governments around the world have temporarily closed educational institutions in an attempt to contain the spread of COVID-19. As of 27 July 2020, approximately 1.725 billion learners were currently affected due to school closures in response to the pandemic.

Victoria University is part of the few education institutions in the country to have embraced the use of distance learning programmes and open educational applications and platforms that lecturers can use to reach learners remotely and limit the disruption of education.
