Dear Distance Learning Students!

We hope you are all fine and pray for the very best in the new trimester.

Please take note of the following as we commence this trimester:

  • The Unit selection & Registration MUST follow the guidelines in the Online Unit Registration Guide available under the main menu of the e-learning portal (also attached here).

Unit Enrolment and Content Upload on E-learning Portal

  • You are required to self-enroll in your trimester units strictly after unit registration on the student portal and fee payment. The unit self enrolment guide and the enrolment key sheet are attached herein to guide.
  • The process of unit self-enrolment should be done starting Thursday 6th May 2021 and latest Monday 31st May 2021. Studies are expected to begin on Monday 10th May 2021. 
  • Unit enrolment on elearning.kca.ac.ke should be done only after registering units in the student portal  (https://portal.kca.ac.ke/kcaportal/) and paying at least the first installment of trimester fees or seeking clearance from students finance office. Any self-enrolment of units done before registration of the units on the student portal and payment of fees is null and void and will be reversed in due course without further reference to you.
  • Strictly confirm the unit code and unit name tally with the code you have registered for in the Student Portal before proceeding to self-enrol the units in the elearning.kca.ac.ke portal. If you study for a wrong unit because of this mistake, you'll be required to register afresh and pay for the unit in the future trimester.
  • E-learning accounts shall also be suspended in due course for those who won't have registered units in the student portal and paid fees or obtained clearance from students’ finance office before the stated deadline.

REMINDER: REVISED FINAL DL JANUARY - APRIL 2021 EXAMINATION TIMETABLES

by Joshua Omanyo -

Dear DL Students,

  • We wish to remind and urge ALL Distance Learning Students to check the REVISED FINAL TIMETABLES as posted under the main menu of the e-learning platform and confirm the placing of their units in the revised final timetables.
  • As advised earlier, there have been late changes introduced early this week in most of the timetables due to last week's Presidential directive on suspension of physical learning activities that have by extension slightly affected all exam timetables, DL included.
  • As a reminder, all BCOM / BPL / DBM students who have a conflict/clashes in the Distance Learning Timetables are directed to identify and sit one of the clashing units as per the Part Time Timetable, or the Full Time Timetable (both are included as sheets in the shared excel files for each program) in that order of priority. The PT/FT exams for those who have to sit them will be offered through the same unit pages (where you have been accessing your assignments & quizzes) in the e-learning portal.
  • You are advise early preparations for reliable internet access and ample time for undertaking the exams as feedback MUST be uploaded within the timings specified in the timetables.
  • In the course of the exam period, keep checking the News Bulletin of the e-learning portal for regular updates as they come.
  • We wish you all the best in your examinations and urge us all to KEEP SAFE.

Kind regards
