At Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN), we have a number of web systems that can be used by both lecturers and students to assist in the learning process as well as systems that can be used by other members of staff to perform various administrative tasks.
SARIS stands for Student Academic Register Information System and it is a web system that can be used by students to create user accounts that will enable them to register for courses, view exam results, book accommodation and elect student body representatives amongst other functions.
CMS stands for Curriculum Management System and it is an online environment that provides materials to support teaching as well as learning. CMS can be used by both lecturers and students. CMS can used by lecturers to manage and plan teaching and students can use it to plan their studies as well as find the most up to date information related to their courses.
PG Connect is a web system similar to CMS but which caters specifically to post graduate students. Lecturers can use PG Connect to start discussions on any topics, administer quizzes and assignments as well as upload study materials. Students can use PG Connect to access study materials uploaded by lecturers, submit assignments and participate in discussions on various topics.
OPAC stands for Open Public Access Catalog and it is a library solution that can assist with getting around the library instead of having to walk down aisles searching for where a book you're interested in is located. Using OPAC, you'll know whether or not a book you want is available in the library.
