Vice-Chancellor of the University of Johannesburg Prof Tshilidzi Marwala says academic results have improved due to online learning.

Higher Education and Training Minister Blade Nzimande briefed the media on the regulations relating to the COVID-19 level 1 restriction.

Nzimande has welcomed 100% attends of university students including international students who meet the requirements of the Cogta regulations which include having a test, not older than 72 hours proving that they are negative of the Coronavirus on arrival in South Africa.

A maximum of 250 persons will be allowed in classrooms at a time, with ventilation of rooms remaining critical.

University of Johannesburg (UJ) Vice-Chancellor Prof Tshilidzi Marwala joined Afternoon Drive where he explained how his university has prepared for their student during and after lockdown, he added that they realised that technology has assisted many students and that they plan to use it more in the future.

I think our future looks pretty much the same, my vision was to really position the University of Johannesburg in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) era in a way we were preparing for this thing, like using technology platforms which we call blended learning and it has always been part of what we do in UJ.

Prof Tshilidzi Marwala, Vice-Chancellor - University of Johannesburg

When our students come back we can’t have a classroom with more than 300 students.

Prof Tshilidzi Marwala, Vice-Chancellor - University of Johannesburg

We want our students to learn our online platforms.
