MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
My name is Akim Munthali and I am a lecturer in Computer Science at Great Zimbabwe University in Masvingo Zimbabwe. My interests are in eLearning/using ICTs to learn as well as software development.
eLearning is a relatively new area at my institution and is not widely yet it has potential to improve learning. Research has shown that many teachers do not have relevant ICT skills to implement eLearning in their classes. Hence, I have just finished collecting data on the ICT needs and competencies of lecturing staff at colleges and universities in Masvingo, where I live. The results of the study will hopefully be able to inform us on the kinds of ICT interventions (if any) required to help the lecturers improve their ICT skills.
I also have an interest in ICT literacy training in the use of basic computer software packages such as wordprocessors and spreadsheets.
