iKamva is used to support UWC courses, or modules, and project sites which are initiated by the community. The word “iKamva” means “future”, which refers to the way in which the social and technological developments are advancing and moving forward.
How we will use the iKamva sites:
● Note that there will be different sites for general communications from the student administrators, and modules.
● The Student Administrators will send you Programme notifications and Memos through the site; if it is for a specific group of students, the subject line will say so, e.g. Att Mini-thesis students; because you receive the announcement as an email, you don’t necessarily need to access the site to see the announcement.
● All such communications will remain on the site: this means it will serve as a kind of filing cabinet.
● For all Modules, lecturers will use the sites as learning tools – to clarify questions, for group discussions, to facilitate group tasks and for interactive learning. Students are often better at explaining difficult concepts to each other than lecturers are; so we encourage you as students to offer your capacity and experience to your fellow students by sharing insights and questions!
