KENET is partnering with selected universities for the remote teaching pilot project. These universities include Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), Daystar University, and University of Nairobi with KENET as the implementation partner and project funder.
The higher education and research community (i.e., students, faculty, researchers and staff) takes Cloud Services for granted. In fact, most members of the community have a Google mail or Yahoo e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) and are vaguely aware that their e-mails are stored somewhere in the Internet or in the cloud. Moreover, most KENET member universities have already moved their student e-mails to Google by taking advantage of FREE Google Apps for Education Services. It means that the e-mail is stored in Google servers that are outside of Kenya.
