The Makerere University management is in talks with MTN to have students and lecturers access e-learning at no cost.
Following the closure of schools by President Museveni as one of the measures to minimize the spread of coronavirus, higher institutions of learning adopted e-learning as a mode of teaching their learners.
However, this has not been effective in the long run after students from various universities complained about the lack of data.
The vice-chancellor of Makerere University now says that he has held a successful meeting with Wim Vanhelleputte, the Chief Executive Officer on opportunities for collaboration between Makerere and MTN.
He says that the main focus is to create a way for students and staff to access E-learning resources at zero rates.
