UG Students Lament as Sakai Continues to Jam.


Some students of the University of Ghana are not happy about their GPAs and have also raised concerns over the institution’s Learning Management System called Sakai.

The Sakai LMS is the main platform that lecturers have been asked to use for online academic activities by the University.

According to some students, the platform has not been fully functional in recent times and have complained that the system keeps logging them out as they go about their interim assessments and quizzes.

The students are even more worried about some of the missed quizzes and assessments due to no fault of theirs, and thus want the management of the university to be more proactive in ensuring that users of the platform have a smooth experience devoid of technicalities.

“On Saturday, we were asked to write two quizzes at the same time for two different courses. We were given times that were close enough. So when you log in, you get logged out, and then the site keeps jamming so many times that we weren’t able to solve the questions and answer very well.


Now we have received emails from the department telling us that they hope the next quiz goes well which means they have recorded this one,” said one student.

“This is not going to help our GPAs. I really think something should be done. So we are begging the authorities to act because our GPAs really are in trouble”.

Attempts to get a response from the university authorities has so far yielded little results.
