Fiji National University (FNU) Pro-Vice Chancellor Research, Professor Mohi­ni Singh, said the government’s initiative; the digitalFIJI pro­gramme would indeed help a lot of students excel in their academic career.

“We are grateful to the Govern­ment of Fiji for its digitalFIJI ini­tiative which allows our students to access online portals from all campuses throughout Fiji,” Pro­fessor Singh said.

She said that more students were now being provided with the op­portunity to interact on the online platform.

“Advances in internet services and provision in Fiji mean that commercial broadband is cheaper and faster and FNU’s connection has enabled differentiated learn­ings among our students,” Profes­sor Singh said.

“With connection to Arnet, the submarine cable connecting the Universities of Austral-Asia with those of North America gives us superfast broadband speeds on campuses throughout Fiji.

“This has resulted in students making use of a wide range of on­line materials for students to fur­ther their knowledge.”

She said libraries around Fiji had been converted from book deposi­tory systems to a flat-form that encouraged progressive learning.

“From online shopping to access­ing e-government internet bank­ing services due to broadband and internet, our students at FNU are now engaging in e-learning and e-education,” Professor Singh said.

“Staff at FNU are also ensur­ing that course content and study materials are provided online to make learning much easier for students.”
