Our world today is characterized by the convergence of new information and communication technologies which have in turn condensed the world into a global village. Virtual learning is the way university education is being delivered across the world especially to those who are busy at their place of work. It is also affordable to those that may not attend face-to-face learning in a normal campus setting.

Prof. Victoria Wells Wulsin, PhD
MKU, Chancellor




We are scaling the Heights of Education Globally through MKU Virtual Campus which is facilitated and commissioned  to offer education to the world wide scope through integrated e-learning technology. We are commited to provide and improve on  our virtual learning facilities.

The investment in the state-of-the art hub for e-learning in the city centre is a deliberate effort by the university to consolidate its innovative approach in the organization and delivery of academic programmes. The hub serves as a centre for innovation on ICT that will solve local and regional problems.

The virtual campus supports the development for academic programmes in ICT field which is very dynamic. MKU students pursuing distance and e-learning programmes interact with lecturers, submit assignments, generate discussions using blogs and check their academic progressions online. This has created a major virtual learning environment which is not affected by time or distance between the students and professors as long as they have access to the Internet. Both online and offline tools are available on the e-learning platform.
