Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki today launched the country’s digital education TV and radio channel at the Kenya Institute of Education (KIE) in Nairobi. Speaking at the launch, the President said that the educational channel will enable the Government to provide expanded high quality transmission through the schools broadcasting programmes.
KIE Director Mrs Lydia Nzomo in her remarks said the institute has finalized arrangements to run a 24/7 audio and visual TV channel programme aimed at enriching and supplementing classroom teaching and covering languages, sciences, Arts, Agriculture and applied sciences. The Director said provision of distant and open learning through the TV Channel would ensure uniform knowledge access and better learning environment for learners in Kenya .
