Executive Director of the GNACOPS, Enoch Kwasi Gyetuah, said modern education demands the utilisation of the global platform to help meet the standards set for it.

“Due to the high cost of these important tools, a lot of people find it difficult to use them to their advantage, most especially, teachers and students.”
