The College organized a one day training on postgraduate ARIS3 online supervision system for all first-year Master’s’ students who are expecting to start writing their research proposals.
The training took place recently and officiated by the Deputy Principal (ARC), Dr. Christina Raphael at the Library Computer Room.
Speaking during the opening session, Dr. Raphael said registering in ARIS3 does not simplify research project writing. However, concerted efforts are needed to enable students complete research activities in time.
She further said online supervision through ARIS system ensures activeness and transparency of supervision process by both supervisor and supervisee. She added that the system generates automatic reminders for delayed responses and about the supervision period.
The Director of Postgraduate Studies, Dr. Sixbert Mlowe highlighted that engaging with ARIS3 helps to monitor the progress and motivate the student to keep on working hard.
Facilitators from ICT department, Mr. Hobokela Mwakansope, Naomi Mushi and Salmin Singano elaborated the activities for online supervision which include logging in, communicating with supervisor, uploading the document, agreeing or disagreeing with the supervisor and logging out.
In this training, 58 Masters students received information on study extensions, e-resources and research information management systems (RIMS). The training, was mandatory as it equipped Masters students with the necessary online supervision skills.
