The current Kenya Universities Students Union says the Higher Education Loans Board ( HELB) should sponsor students laptops. While addressing the Media houses, the UON president Ann Mwangi says that the current move of advocating for online studying is not favourable. The move requires all the current university students to own laptops which they will use in the next academic year. Based on developmental goals and educational research, the move is an accurate measure to study amid the ongoing pandemic. However the students complained about the expenses brought as a result of purchasing laptops and bundles for browsing.
Online mode of study has its benefits but it also costly and as a result has met a cold reply from the comrades.
As a response to the complaints from the students, the UON president said the expenses incurred in purchasing laptops and bundles should be met by the loans board.
Its fair and considerable for the loans board to help students with loans which will incur for the expenses. In the same context, the government ought to take part in delivering learnings bundles for all students to ensure they aren't left behind. However, network connection and coverage is a big problem to the nation as a significant number of learners will be left out as a result.
