CURRENT CONNECTIVITY STATUS
6
Available Connectivity Options
  • Dial-up acces using TDM voice grade lines,
  • ADSL using TDM telephone lines,
  • Wimax technology provided by Teledata
  • GPRS/EDGE technology used by cellular companies
  • VSAT based satellite communication.
  • Fibre optic connection through TDM network.

7
PROPOSED SOLUTION
  • TDM Fibre optic solution (Jan 2009)
  • TDM fibre back-borne covers 98 of country
  • This is the most technically viable solution at
    the moment.
  • MoRENet (Jan 2010)
  • This is the future
  • Wireless links in the cities
  • Will however still depend on TDM on inter-city
    links

PROJECT PHASES
  • Phase 1 (January 2009)
  • upgrading the current connection of FMED
  • A fixed IP, a leased data line and
    router/firewall will need to be purchased.
  • Phase 2 (February 2009)
  • Connecting FEG to FMED
  • Connect CED to the FMED
  • This will be done through leased data circuits
    from TDM
  • Purchase of firewall to install at FMED
  • Phase 3 (August 2009)
  • Connect the rest of the campuses to the FMED in
    Beira.
  • purchase of routers and leased data circuits

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST
  • Cost done for each phase
  • Equipment costs
  • Monthly fixed charges

Electrical Power
  • Stable and reliable power supply
  • The servers have to be connected to a UPS
  • Power cuts interrupt accessibility
  • Computer and data are sensitive to unreliable
    power supplies
  • Standby generators in case of power outages
  • Failure to access due to power failures derails
    user confidence

15
Skills and Skills development
  • Need to put resources and mechanisms for
    continious skills development
  • Support staff training
  • Attendance to conferences
  • New technologies training
  • Certified staff (CCNA, MSCSE, RHCE, etc)
  • Content development training for lecturers
  • Student and lecturer training on proper use of
    e-learning platform
  • KEWL
  • Moodle
  • WebCT
  • etc

16
Conclusion
  • The success of E-learning in Higher education
    hinges on
  • Proper ICT infrastructure
  • Enabling policy framework
