According to Michael Kaingu, Education Minister in Zambia, using ICT platforms to deliver teaching will cost 30% less than traditional pedagogical methods.

Based on this estimate, the University of Zambia is currently using the Zambia Research Education Network to make lectures and research available online for students.

This means increasing the capacity of university libraries, which Mr. Kaingu says the University of Zambia plans to do.

Finally, the Minister mentions that this is consistent with the global shift towards ICT.
