Wits University to resume the academic programme online amid COVID-19

With all institutions shut down across the county due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Wits University has announced a new way to proceed with academics for this year.

(1-14 April 2020): All academics will prepare to take lectures online.
(15-19 April 2020): Online orientation begins this week for staff and students. All course outlines, lecture notes, reading lists, and additional audio-visual material will be uploaded and tested during this period.
(20 April 2020): The University opens for the second term and delivery of the academic programme begins online.
All the Learning Management Systems (LMS) including Wits-e (Sakai) and Moodle will be hosted in the Amazon cloud to ensure that the systems have sufficient infrastructural support and that they are able to cope with the large number of users accessing the systems at the same time.
