Abstract

MKU Digital Varsity started as an abstract in July 2010, motivated by the Mount Kenya
University’s desire to expand access to
higher education and to provide an alternative way of obtaining quality academic
qualifications to those who could not attend the campus-based mode of learning. The university has invested in reliable ICT infrastructure, integrated students manage- ment and digital learning management systems to actualise digital learning.
Like the proverbial long journey that
starts with only one step, MKU Digital
Varsity started as a small distance learning centre housed at the Main Campus in Thika, offering Bachelor of Business Man- agement and Bachelor of Psychology. With just a population of around 50
students, the centre morphed into MKU’s
Virtual Campus in July 2011, and later to
Virtual Varsity in 2012. Now it is Digital
Varsity.
