The Executive Director of Centre For National Distance Learning and Open Schooling (CENDLOS) Nana Gyamfi Adwabour addressing the team said that the Covid-19 pandemic taught countries a bigger lesson, especially in the area of education and now most countries including Ghana have inculcated digitization in education.

In furtherance, he stated the over 1.2 million children who were displaced during the lockdown because schools were closed down can now learn from the comfort of their locations without having to necessarily be in the classroom as a result of the introduction of icampus and ibox.

He added CENDLOS through the five key areas of digitization that is policy, infrastructure, content, capacity building, and assessment shall ensure the project is effectively and efficiently implemented to build a better world.
