KAMPALA — Businessman Hamis Kiggundu has set his hands in a plethora of ventures, and the latest on the catalog is an online learning platform named, Hamz Campus.
The new learning platform running on the website, www.hamzcampus.com, comes to address the challenges in the education sector that were occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since the emergency of the deadly coronavirus, physical learning has stalled. It is against that background that Hamis Kiggundu has decided to establish an online portal to ensure that no time is lost. Rather than sit home, learners can now access over 5,000 practical courses and knowledge through the website.
Some of the courses are; marketing and sales, career development courses, administrative skills, human resource courses, personal development courses, to mention but a few.
My intention is to equip the young people with practical soft skills, setting the pace of learning they deem best for themselves as well as choosing the course they personally want to study, says Kiggundu.
“Through the platform, individuals can take ownership and responsibility of their education, without any time constraints. The platform seeks to equip young people with practical soft skills, set the pace of learning they deem best for themselves as well as choose the course they personally want to study,” Kiggundu adds.
The teaching model will be based on real everyday affairs.
According to Kiggundu, “Education based on reason and reality is the key to global prosperity.”
The portal is accessible to everyone with access to the internet across the world. Tutors are handpicked from across the world and will be available 24/7, according to the team behind the development of the platform.
Hamz platform operates a number of subsidiaries through different web and mobile based platforms ranging from; Education, Communication, Online Shopping, Online Payment, Video hosting and Entertainment sectors.
