Makerere University has embarked on a programme to decongest the university by opening regional centres across Uganda. Students from rural areas will be able to access lectures via a video conference system at five regional centres. The programme, which kicks off next month, follows an agreement signed on Monday between the university and Uganda Telecom which will provide the communication infrastructure and 2,000 computers. The university will have to pay for the bandwidth.
