NUS TV Channel 8 and NUS Lifelong learning initiative Launch
A ceremony to launch the NUS TV broadcast as well as the NUS lifelong learning initiative was held at the School of Maritime Training yesterday.
It was attended by the Honourable Minister of Education Loau Keneti Sio who was the keynote speaker, CEO of Education, CEO of SQA and members of the NUS Council.
In his keynote address, the minister praised the launch as a milestone event. He commended that the launch of the two innovative projects by NUS are indeed quite timely given the restrictions to the delivery of education due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
He added that the NUS TV will be another valuable added tool in the delivery of educational programs that will benefit both students and staff (teachers) with its broad coverage so that no one is left behind.
With the NUS lifelong learning initiative, the minister applauded the joint initiative between NUS and COL which will offer much needed scholarships or learning opportunities from Google, Coursera and Udemy for Samoan citizens. In addition, he mentioned that, “ We are indeed very fortunate that Samoan citizens will have access to learning from these providers of international standing.”
He concluded by congratulating NUS and COL for its vision and foresight, and also a word of thanks to the people who were the frontrunners with the implementation of both projects.
