Zero-rated Mobile Access
Why Zero-rated Access?
Students and staff of our member institutions find it unaffordable to access their Institutions’ e-learning platforms when off-campus.
RENU has an arrangement where member institutions can have their students and staff access their institutions’ websites and e-learning portals without having to load data bundles. In the same way, individuals using mobile internet do not need to load a data bundle to access all sites in the “renu.ac.ug” domain.
One of the online learning challenges faced by students and staff today is unaffordable access to the institutions’ e-learning platforms when off-campus. Zero-rated access supports students and staff in e-learning by taking away the burden of Internet costs.
Zero-rated Access Impact
We empower millions of students/academicians across our membership to access online academic content without worrying about the cost of Internet connectivity. Through our Zero-rated Mobile Access, millions of students have been able to access virtual cases and participate in seminars irrespective of whether the students are from urban or upcountry schools.
