Tanzania: IAA Partners UK, Indian Institutes

THE Institute of Accountancy Arusha, will be working with the Coventry University in the UK and India's BIRLA Institute of Technology, to improve its science and technology endeavours in accounting courses.

The Chairperson of the IAA Management Board, Ms Mwanaidi Mtanda, stated here that the Institute of Accountancy was also aiming at introducing 'cloud lecturing,' through computer based Information Technology and taking advantage of the Fibre Optic Cable which is speeding up connectivity.

"We are going to make proper use of the high speed Internet and the networking of our 750 computer sets to achieve the distance learning through technology," said the IAA Board Chairperson.

She said the new cloud-based training facility will help reduce operation costs for the institute but also save time and money for students who can 'attend classes' virtually from anywhere on the globe.

On the other hand, it was pointed during the occasion that, girls' skirts have just become weapons in the ongoing waves of exam cheating because female candidates 'write' expected answers for test papers on their thighs and all they have to do once in exams room is simply to adjust their skirts.
