Management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism has directed all continuing students to resume online lectures effective January 25, 2021.

The directive comes shortly after President Akufo-Addo paved way for all schools to resume face-to-face teaching and learning following the closure of schools for about ten months due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in the country.

Management in a statement explained that the directive is to ensure the safety of students while meeting the exigencies of the time.

“Effective January 25, 2021, lectures for continuing students will take place online via the Learning Management System (LMS) of the Institute,” the statement said.

“First-year students, including level 300 Top-up students, will migrate to online studies after the third week of face-to-face teaching effective February 1, 2021.

“Students are entreated to quickly adapt to the new normal of online learning as we seek to ensure their safety and meet the exigencies of time,” the statement added.
