As we talk to you now, we have just conducted our mid-semester quiz online and we are ready to start our exams online as soon as the time comes but within this week every lecturer has conducted online quiz for their students.
“So we have a very effective online teaching and learning for our students so that they are at home doesn’t not mean they are losing anything; that is why the Vice Chancellor has continued to say that the students of Evangel University will graduate in record time because they are not going to give in any dime.
