Junior I-Network Node invites Uconnect to demonstrate SchoolAxxess at Namilyango College

I-Network is an international institute assisting developing countries to realise locally owned sustainable development by harnessing the potential of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). IICD works with partner organisations in Uganda to support project formulation and implementation, capacity development and knowledge sharing.  The Junior I-Network Node organizes ICT training camps for students and presentations about emerging technologies and the use of ICTs for enhancing education and promoting development at Uganda schools.

Junior I-Network Node Coordinator, Natalie Kimbugwe, arranged for Uconnect to demonstrate the SchoolAxxess server technology at Namilyango College in Seeta this April.  Eighty students, members of the Namilyango Computer Club, attended the demo, together with the Deputy Headmistress and the Honourable Dr. Johnson Nkuuhe, a founder of I-Network.
