Digital Learning worlds and Boundless Communication

The Internet has long since become an essential part of everyday life for students, researchers and academics, who after all were among the first to take advantage of the opportunities the technology offers for boundless communication.  These days it is almost impossible to imagine life without the Internet, and hardly any area of society remains unaffected by the global network; teaching (virtual teaching) and research are also changing thanks to the opportunities of virtual communication.  In the main feature of this article, I will be taking a look at the new digital learning worlds: a great deal is happening in all higher education, and people are engaged in a lively discussion about the consequences of educational offerings that are available anytime and anywhere, and about the new opportunities offered by the Internet when it comes to academic exchange and the democratization of knowledge.

TRIBUTE: Haja Khadija Savage: The passing of a colleague journalist

Today, I am writing a tribute with tears in my eyes and a great sadness in my heart for a dedicated, humble and great journalist who has great respect for elders and colleagues in the field of journalism and Islam in particular.

Her passing is a great lose to the journalism profession in Sierra Leone and to her Islamic brothers and sisters who have had the fortunate opportunity of sharing this great woman’s knowledge and time.

Haja Khadija Savage has left this world for eternity, however, I believe her soul is still with us, and for me, memory of her still lingers in my mind.

In her life, Khadija, as she was known by her numerous comrades, admirers and friends lived a life of piety, wisdom and knowledge. She was a great respecter of people, including the young and old.

The Fight against Corruption Should be the Business of all Sierra Leoneans

The fight against corruption the world over has never been an easy task; it has always been a challenging one especially in Africa where many governments continue to frown on the concept of transparency and accountability which enable the citizenries to hold their authorities accountable for their actions.

And when governments deliberately refuse to open up their day-to-day activities to their citizenries, there is the likelihood that such governments would involve in corrupt practices and their citizenries could not hold them accountable since their authorities are running closed governments.

View Point

REJOINDER: COMMENDING JULIUS MAADA BIO

In an editorial piece of Awareness Times of 16th July 2014, the newspaper praised the alacrity of Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio in the manner he reacted to the ebola outbreak. The editorial piece particularly commended Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio for his solidarity message in which the former Head of State called on Sierra Leoneans to join the government’s campaign against the deadly Ebola virus. But it was not only about the solidarity message; the Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio also used the 2nd June 2014 Press Release to express his sadness for the loss of lives of his country men and women whilst at the same time called on development partners to come swiftly to the aid of our country in dealing with the fatal outbreak.

Therefore, if the Awareness Times newspaper needed any more assurance that a Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio Presidency for our country will be one of national cohesion, showing concern for fellow compatriots and above all a presidency which will be proactive in addressing a national tragedy then the content of that Press Release and the swiftness of his response to the ebola outbreak is one amongst many of the evidences abound. As such in my view it will be utterly retrogressive for our country that if the delegates of the SLPP elect Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio as their Presidential Candidate and there is another attempt to ROB SLPP off election victory and deprive the majority of suffering Sierra Leoneans their legitimate choice of Presidency through a free and fair democratic elections in 2017/18.
