Makerere goes digital.
Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni, who described the technology as crucial for students as "a knowledge multiplier", launched the project. At the launch, the IFC's Scott Featherstone borrowed Nelson Mandela's words that "education is the most powerful weapon to use to change the world". He added that the challenge is "for all of us to ensure that higher standards of education are achieved through modern methods of conducting educational activities, especially using ICTs". In total, 15 universities in six other African countries, including Ghana, Liberia and Nigeria, have already gone digital.
