Abstract: The Distance Education Project in Agriculture which began in 1990 at the University Centre of Dschang (UCD) was the fruit of collaboration between the University of Dschang, Cameroon and the University of Guelph, Canada and benefited from initial funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). The programme effectively took off on 29 April 1996 with the publication of the Ministerial orders No. 00/003/MINESUP/DDES of 26/01/00 and No. 01/0040/MINESUP/DDES of 29/0501 related to the regime of studies and examination at the Distance Education Programme (DEP) and to the creation of the Centre for Distance Education (CDE) at the Faculty of Agronomy and Agricultural Sciences (FAAS) of the University of Dschang. This institutionalization of the DEP enabled the University to pioneer Distance Education in Cameroon Higher Education.

Abstract: This study investigated the distribution and effectiveness of distance learning models in selected higher education institutions in Cameroon. The specific objectives of the study were: (1) to identify the distance learning models currently in use in higher education worldwide, (2) to identify and describe the models currently used in selected Cameroon higher education institutions, and (3) to assess the effectiveness with which each institution applies its distance learning model. The design of the study was a survey, based on the cross-section survey. The participants in this study were made up of 97 respondents from Distance Learning (DL) programmes in the universities of Buea, Douala, Dschang and Yaounde I. Data were collected from literature and a close ended questionnaire, designed using the Likert method. Content analysis was carried out through literature review. The design facilitated a comparison of indicators among the distance learning programmes of the four institutions concerned. The quantitative data were subjected to descriptive and inferential statistical analysis using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) Version 17.0 (SPSS Inc. 2008). Descriptive statistics were used to present the distribution of subjects between and within subsets using frequencies, proportions, cross tabulations and Multiple Responses Analysis. The results of the study indicate that in general terms, higher education institutions worldwide use at least seven models in distance learning programmes. Cameroon higher education institutions on their part are using mainly the Multi-media, and the Telelearning models of distance learning. In relation to effectiveness, all the distance learning programmes are reported to be satisfactorily providing students with pre-registration information, information relating to the content of courses, and motivational strategies that reduce the student dropout rate. However, students in all the distance learning programmes reported dissatisfaction with interaction.
Land Tenure System: Women’s Access to Land in a Cosmopolitan Context
EST Quansah
OGIRISI: a New Journal of African Studies , 2012,
Abstract: Land tenure is a concept that looks at how people gain access to land and how they make use of it. In various African societies, there are cases where women's land ownership is complicated by the gender ideology that women should not own property, particularly land and housing. Women who own property tend to be stereotyped as self-assertive and unruly, and therefore not marriage worthy. This study utilized primary data and combined quantitative and qualitative methods in analyzing the data collected. Focused group discussions (FGDs) were also organized as a source of qualitative information to support the quantitative data. Findings from the research are that there is an increase in net registration of titles to land by males over the period, compared to a reduction in females registering titles. There is a gender difference in the number of plots owned by males and females. Males owned more plots of land as compared to females. While the majority of male respondents directly negotiated for their land purchases, it was more usual for females to use male intermediaries in an effort to prevent being duped by predominantly male land sellers. Recommendation from the study is that equal inheritance rights to land should be guaranteed to both men and women.

A psychrometric analysis of thermal comfort In low-rise office buildings in Ghana
C Koranteng, D Nyame- Tawiah, E Quansah
Journal of Science and Technology (Ghana) , 2011,
Abstract: A research project on the thermal performance of office buildings in Ghana was conducted and in the process, data loggers were used to record indoor environmental conditions over a period of 12 months in five office buildings. The temperature and relative humidity values recorded were analysed and plotted on psychrometric charts. The results of the study in 15 offices were placed in psychrometric charts which showed uncomfortable indoor environmental conditions. The reasons were high relative humidity values, although the temperatures in most of the cases were below 29°C. The impression gained during the observation period was that occupants had adapted to high humidity levels and therefore found maximum humidity levels of 80% comfortable, provided temperature values did not exceed 29°C. This significant clue calls for further study and the adjustment of the comfort scale for the climatic context of Kumasi, Ghana.

Abstract: Performance assessments of jatropha, palm oil and soya bean based biodiesel were carried out to investigate their potential use as conventional substitute for kerosene for domestic purposes in rural- Ghana. The assessments were done by comparing some of the combustion characteristics of blends of the biodiesel with kerosene. The blends were categorised as B100 (100% biodiesel), B80 (80% biodiesel and 20% kerosene), B60 (60% biodiesel and 40% kerosene), B40 (40% biodiesel and 60% kerosene), B20 (20% biodiesel and 80% kerosene) and B0 (pure kerosene). The results showed that the calorific values of the B100s were less than that of the B0 and decreasing in the order of jatropha, soya bean and palm oil. The wick wastage results for both the B100s and B0, revealed higher rates in the WTL than the BB even though the BB recorded low fuel consumption rates than the WTL for both B100s and B0. Similarly, the luminous intensity test with the B100s showed low values in WTL than the BB in a decreasing order of jatropha, soya bean and palm oil. However, B0 recorded higher luminous intensity values that were quite comparable in both WTL and BB.
Rumor Has It…: Relay Communication of Stress Cues in Plants

Abstract: Recent evidence demonstrates that plants are able not only to perceive and adaptively respond to external information but also to anticipate forthcoming hazards and stresses. Here, we tested the hypothesis that unstressed plants are able to respond to stress cues emitted from their abiotically-stressed neighbors and in turn induce stress responses in additional unstressed plants located further away from the stressed plants. Pisum sativum plants were subjected to drought while neighboring rows of five unstressed plants on both sides, with which they could exchange different cue combinations. On one side, the stressed plant and its unstressed neighbors did not share their rooting volumes (UNSHARED) and thus were limited to shoot communication. On its other side, the stressed plant shared one of its rooting volumes with its nearest unstressed neighbor and all plants shared their rooting volumes with their immediate neighbors (SHARED), allowing both root and shoot communication. Fifteen minutes following drought induction, significant stomatal closure was observed in both the stressed plants and their nearest unstressed SHARED neighbors, and within one hour, all SHARED neighbors closed their stomata. Stomatal closure was not observed in the UNSHARED neighbors. The results demonstrate that unstressed plants are able to perceive and respond to stress cues emitted by the roots of their drought-stressed neighbors and, via ‘relay cuing’, elicit stress responses in further unstressed plants. Further work is underway to study the underlying mechanisms of this new mode of plant communication and its possible adaptive implications for the anticipation of forthcoming abiotic stresses by plants.
