Assomada, Apr 27 (Inforpress) – The President of the Republic, José Maria Neves, said on Tuesday that the US Virtual program by the University of Santiago is an example of what can be done in terms of e-learning.
The Head of State spoke to the press after a visit to the University of Santiago (US), in Assomada, in the municipality of Santa Catarina, which is part of a series of visits he will make to public and private higher education institutions.
Given that, according to him, Cabo Verde is an archipelago, with fragmented territories and a vast Diaspora, he reiterated that information technologies are essential to connect the country and have students on all the islands without the need to leave the respective islands to be in a university.
In this regard, the President of the Republic highlighted US Virtual, which, according to him, “has grown a lot” in recent years, and with the pandemic “accelerated the steps” and is an example of what can be done in terms of e-learning.
