A Chance to Learn and Work in Groups Amid Covid-19: Yaw Biney

YawBiney Writes;

“A man who swallows a complete coconut must have total trust in his anus”- African Proverb

In compliance with the address by the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo at 10pm on Sunday March 15, 2020, in which directives were issued on the pandemic; the deadly Coronavirus (COVID – 19), and that, all activities that require public gathering of more than 25 people has been suspended until further notice, there should be the adoption and the implementation of E-learning platforms especially for students who are in their final year and preparing for their various examinations, and to the larger extent business patners who will inevitably have to engage their clients both in and outside this country.

In an era of Information Communication Technology (ICT) amidst this difficult times, Online Meeting Applications, can be used positively to reduce physical contact and consequently, the spread of this deadly COVID-19 outbreak which has seen Ghana recording 11 cases as at 15:00GMT on 19th March, 2020.
