Airtel Uganda partners with Avaya to enable educational institutions in the Uganda to implement remote learning initiatives.
In the partnership, Avaya will offer institutions full-feature access to its collaboration application Avaya Spaces, on a complimentary basis, through Airtel Uganda.
Avaya Spaces is a cloud meeting and team collaboration service integrating chat, voice, video, online meetings and content sharing as well as obvious use cases for virtual learning.
Avaya Spaces works on all Android and iOS devices and can be accessed on personal computers and laptops via Chrome or Firefox browsers, too.
It enables teachers and administrative staff to communicate with parents, pupils and each other to minimise learning disruption amid school closures. Using the app, pupils will be able to participate in virtual classrooms from any location, with the ability to download study materials and send assignments to teachers electronically.
The app allows parents to hold virtual meetings with professors, share inquiries and observations, and establish dedicated digital forums where they can engage with each other as well as with teachers, administrators, or staff in the educational institution.
