Faculty who teach ICT Networking courses benefited from a 3 day workshop hosted by KENET. The workshop which ran from September 18-20, 2017 gave the 25 participants an opportunity to use the KENET virtual training lab for the first time. The training which was fully funded by KENET strengthened the faculty’s technical capacity so that their students can be more productive.
A visit by KENET to 10 Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVETs) Institutions in Western Kenya, from Bomet to Baringo revealed the increasing need for Internet services in these colleges. The five-day (Sep 12-16) visit by the KENET team provided an opportunity for KENET to assess the institution’s connectivity to the KENET internet as well as listen to their needs. The survey found that the increasing need for Internet connectivity was attributed to factors such as increasing student population, expansion of curriculum and facilities.
