Global Finance has named Ecobank as the most innovative bank in Africa. The announcement was made at the eighth Global Finance annual awards, the Innovators 2020, honouring entities that regularly identify new paths and design new tools in finance.  Categories in the award include Top Innovations in Corporate Finance, Payments, Trade Finance, Cash Management, Islamic Finance, with Winners selected from different regions of the world. The classes of award comprised Most Innovative Banks in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Central & Eastern Europe, Latin America, Middle East, North America and Western Europe; The Most Innovative Fintech Companies in Asia-Pacific, Central & Eastern Europe, North America and Western Europe; and The Best Financial Innovation Labs. At the virtual awards announcement, Anita Hawser, European Editor at Global Finance and Lead, Global Finance Awards evaluation team, noted that companies recognized at the Innovators 2020 significantly stood apart. She said the review panel looked at innovation in the context of product or process innovation, as they were ultimately more concerned with the impact of innovation in terms of creating value for customers or addressing a specific need, like speeding up lending or credit review process for small businesses; enabling companies to deposit cheques remotely and not having to visit the branches. According to her, these are innovations that significantly reduce the time or cost of companies to perform financial tasks and really transform customers’ business lives helping them operate more effectively in a significantly challenging business and economic environment. In his remark, Ade Ayeyemi, Ecobank Group CEO said: “We are pleased to be recognised as the ‘Most Innovative Bank in Africa’ by Global Finance.

Although never formally asked to close, Kalimba Management decided to close the Reptile Park for the month of April for the safety of our Staff and for the safety of our valued customers. As this global pandemic has evolved so has our fight against it, and in Zambia the economic backlash of this crisis has been felt much more than the decline in public health. The decision was therefore made to reopen the park on the 1st of May. Life as we know it must continue, but with caution. Respecting public health measures of mask wearing, hand washing and social distancing we have been open for two weeks with our restaurant and bar closed. This seems to have functioned well and our customers were thrilled to be able to get out, go fishing, have a picnic, and getting some fresh air - all things that are important in these strange times. Following the Government’s announcement this week in which restaurants have been allowed to reopen, we have decided to completely reopen the reptile park to its full capacity, but of course maintaining all of the public health regulations. We are looking forward to welcoming you all back to Kalimba, and trust each one of you to be responsible in keeping yourselves, your families and our staff safe, all while keeping our local economy and businesses open.

University challenges Universities are facing diverse social and economic challenges: reduced government funding, higher costs to maintain facilities, strikes by students or staff and now the coronavirus pandemic. Such challenges cause disruptions and affect the efficient operation of universities. As a result, higher education institutions search for alternatives to traditional on-campus teaching, to overcome these difficulties. And the best alternative by far is online delivery. The advantages of online learning It is a fact that, through technology, universities can increase their outreach and revenue by recruiting students from around the world. In the era of smartphones and Internet on the go almost every school leaver or professional can access online learning. They can study from home, in their own free time, without neglecting work commitments. Also, students can ‘earn as they learn’, using their salaries to fund their studies and provide for their families. They can earn UK, European or American qualifications, highly coveted by employers, without travelling abroad. Qualifications from internationally recognised universities help graduates in Africa, the Middle East or Asia get better jobs, and advance in their careers. At the same time, studying online with tutors and students from different countries exposes them to the procedures and culture of the multinational workplace. As higher education providers turn to new countries to recruit students online, they need to overcome another challenge. The high cost of establishing and maintaining a digital platform to facilitate online delivery of programmes. Universities must keep their operation profitable to be viable, and most are in no position to invest millions to have their own digital infrastructure. Unicaf is the answer Unicaf, a global higher education organisation, offers a tried and tested solution since 2012. It partners with established universities in the UK, the USA and Africa to facilitate the online delivery of their programmes. Unicaf has professional know-how and state-of-the-art technology to facilitate online delivery of courses globally. In addition, without the cost of maintaining facilities or employing administrators to run a campus, Unicaf can offer partner programmes at reduced prices. Thus, programmes are more accessible, more flexible and more affordable. Unicaf has years of experience in marketing partner universities’ programmes and recruiting thousands of online students. Partner universities supervise programme content, following strict codes of Quality Assurance, and award the degrees. The Unicaf digital platform provides everything a student needs from registration to graduation, including the Virtual Learning Environment. The VLE connects students and tutors, offers access to e-libraries and networking forums, facilitates programme delivery. In fact, Unicaf’s user-friendly platform and modern teaching tools like videos, quizzes, podcasts, polls and group projects help students learn faster and retain for longer. Students receive individual attention from tutors, according to how fast they can process the material. They submit assignments, receive graded work and even take their exams through the VLE. They strike friendships and make professional contacts in different countries. After completing their studies online, they can even participate in the official graduation ceremony at the partner’s campus. Making university programmes available to millions Thus, Unicaf can provide universities with the necessary technological infrastructure to make their programmes available to millions, via online delivery. Providing an online delivery option is of growing importance for universities in the west, looking to increase revenues and ensure uninterrupted delivery of programmes, especially in challenging times. Unicaf is the answer to these pressing difficulties faced by many universities today.

The threat to universities from the corona virus pandemic The corona virus pandemic forces countries to take strict measures. Universities fear on campus outbreaks. Such outbreaks could create problems with academic procedures. However, there is a very viable alternative to disruptions which threaten universities with closures. The alternative is online learning. Online learning is invincible by diseases, extreme weather phenomena, or social unrest. Therefore, the development of the Internet and technological advances have turned online learning into the new big player in education. It is flexible, affordable and accessible to almost everyone. Sick students can continue with their studies, new mothers can study while on maternity leave, working professionals can earn higher degrees. Specifically, should the majority be quarantined to contain the spread of the virus, online learning can be a useful distraction; a way to use quarantine time creatively; an opportunity to learn or research interesting things that we never have time to explore; or a way too earn a new qualification to improve your career prospects. Online learning with Unicaf Digital platforms, like Unicaf, provide everything a student needs from enrollment to graduation. They provide access to e-libraries and forums to interact with students and tutors in many countries; also, they use modern tools that make learning fun, (videos, quizzes and group projects). Above all, with online learning students can complete modules, submit assignments, take exams and graduate, without setting foot on campus. In addition, Unicaf online graduates receive exactly the same degrees as on campus fellow students. Unicaf is the exclusive online delivery partner of internationally recognised institutions; its partners include the University of Suffolk and Liverpool John Moores University in the UK, the University of California, Riverside Extension in the USA and multi-campus Unicaf University in Africa.
