  • Kwaga Winnie – On module 492 of Touch-typing

Challenges

  • Some of the trainees attended using phones
  • Some of the students were unable to attend the today’s class due to many reasons which include:
    • Poor network connection
    • Death of a relative
    • Attending to sick relatives

Conclusion

Overall this session was a success. Some trainees about 2 of them attended using phones but we recommended them to their computers the next time since the instructions are to attend the sessions using a computer.

We shall start from there tomorrow and ensure to start from where we left off.
