Undoubtedly, the educational sector has been badly hit by the coronavirus pandemic in Ghana causing curriculum disruptions.  As a result, virtual or e-learning has been adopted by most educational institutions to enable them to complete their academic work.

Executive Director of the Ghana National Council of Private Schools GNACOPS, Enoch Jetuah, explained the introduction of an online examination platform.  He hinted that more than 18,000 students from Private schools nationwide have written their online terminal examinations from Nursery to JHS 2. Mr. Jetuah noted that the platform is disability friendly.

Reacting to the adoption of online terminal examination by GNACOPS, Director General of the Ghana Education Service, Prof.  Opoku Amankwah said the move although laudable leaves much to be desired.

Speaking to Radio Ghana, Prof. Amankwah said that the priority of the GES is content, practical based learning and assessment and not terminal examination.

Hence, the introduction of the virtual learning channel on GBC TV dubbed GL TV. This he said will help students in Junior and Senior High Schools to catch up with the curriculum while at home.  He also hinted of plans to replicate this on radio soon.
