The Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Professor Joseph Ghartey Ampiah says it is becoming increasingly evident that more and more students are opting for the masters’ programme in the distance education because of its convenience and suitability for the working class.

He is therefore urging the College of Distance Education [CoDE] to double its efforts at making technology functional in the delivery of lectures so that the university’s clients could sit in the comfort of their homes and obtain their degrees.

He says by this the university would have rendered a great service to many disadvantaged people who yearn to acquire high academic qualifications.

A 45-year-old security guard of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Adolf Coffie, who allegedly murdered his girlfriend on suspicion of infidelity on Christmas Eve is in the grip of the Cape Coast Police.

Police sources said a hunter who heard the screams of the dying lady and ran to her rescue could only take the details of her killer from her before she breathed her last.

Preliminary investigations conducted by the police so far indicate that Coffie hit Prisca Asare, also known as Maame Serwaa, a 32-year-old mother of four, many times with a wooden plank, leading to her death.

The Executive Secretary for Centre for Road Safety and Accountability, Frank Yirenkyi has admonished the National Road Safety Commission [NRSC] to aggressively involve the media to sensitize the public about road safety during the Christmas season.

Speaking on TV3 News, Frank Yirenkyi said that the National Road Safety Commission should not be limited to the institutions that have specifically been tasked to educate the public about road safety but rather extend to all areas including churches, mosques and other public areas.

Some top educators and administrators view the idea of a paperless classroom as an impossibility in education, but in today’s digital age, many educators have the robust conviction that a paperless classroom rather promotes a more efficient and organized classroom.

Proponents of a paperless classroom believe that it prepares students for the practical world outside classroom walls.
