dc.description.abstract
Following the Introduction in chapter one, the report provides a country overview in chapter two to provide the national context. The connectivity gap has both a supply-side and a demand-side: chapter three explores the demand-side, focusing on ICT in the education sector and the challenges impacting the use of information and communication technologies for teaching, learning, and research, creating the pull factors; and chapter four examines the supply-side, the ICT sector's key components and the challenges affecting high-speed connectivity. The National Research and Education Network (NREN), the Research and Education Network for Uganda (RENU) is the higher education response created to close the gap between the demand-side and the supply-side, and chapter five presents a high-level summary of the status of RENU as well as its achievements and limitation in delivering high-speed connectivity to HEIs. Drawing on findings from the earlier chapters, chapter six discusses the cost of connecting all higher education institutions in Uganda to high-speed Internet. The conclusion is given in chapter seven, followed by the appendices.
