UPSA e-learning site forced to undergo maintenance after massive Interim Assessment pressure

The e-learning site of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) is currently undergoing maintenance barely four days after the start of the Interim Assessment (IA) for the first semester.

Students who were scheduled to take their IAs on Friday, February 26, 2021, were hugely disappointed when their papers were postponed.

The same fate was suffered by students who were prepared to take their papers on Saturday, February 27, 2021.

At the time of publishing this story, UPSANEWSROOM.com visited the site and this is what was displayed: “The site is undergoing maintenance and is currently not available.”

Meanwhile, it is not clear when the site would be running for the students to continue with their tests.

Some students who spoke to UPSANEWSROOM.com on Saturday expressed their disappointment at the turn of events.

“What’s happening clearly shows that the university was not ready for the Interim Assessment. This is because this site has proven that it can’t take the pressure. This happened last year and I am afraid it will happen again,” a final year Business Administration student said.

For Alice who is in her first year preparing to take her first test on Monday, the problems with the site deserves the utmost attention of the school authorities.

“When you demand school fees from students, you should be ready at the same time to fix any problems there are with your system,” she said, adding: “the university must seek the interest of students.”

Another final year student who identified himself as Joseph has encouraged the university to fix the problems with the e-learning site.

“Technology is bound to fail, but it must not fail every time. The school should do something about this,” he said.
