    The Information Technological progress has provided us with more efficient means for going backwards and check what has happened and when when…unfortunately EPRDFites are not using this for good.
    ………………
    Big offices has to have its own information technology department with a responsibility of encoding and analyzing thier data..I am sure there are thousands of university graduates Ethiopians in IT looking for job..

    Alex, everything is crap in Ethiopia. The other days I was struggling to access Addis Ababa University. The website is very poor. The website is in English and you can hardly find anything.

    I Want to see the programmes and everything. But I could not see anything. I dare say the website of addis ababa University is dead. I wrote an email natural science asking questions I wanted info and also asked why is the website very poor ? I got no response. I work with Universities in Japan. The Universities in Japan have websites in Japanese; I used translator to read what I want; You do not have struggle with English if you can use it.

    I suggest you visit Addis Ababa University website and you will be disappointed. No single University has a website in Amharic or any other Ethiopian languages.

    It is heart breaking Universities do not have a good website either in English or Amharic or any other Ethiopians languages. The audiences in Ethiopia are 100% Ethiopians. Why do you need an English website which people can not understand. In order to use English you do not need to have a website in English. There thousands of softwares which translates languages. I read Arabic news, …using translators.

    The universities in Ethiopia are only name; they have no the capacity to do anything. One would expect addis ababa university to be the top of all the universities? but addis ababa University has neither a good English or Amharic websites. Sad, you try to communicate, they never respond at all. I communicate or send emails to Universities in USA, Europe, Japan, China, Taiwan, Australia,… I get response immediately, but never expect any response from Ethiopia. The websites at addis ababa universities have about financial info written on dead buttons. Most of the info written on the dead websites are not supposed to be there. I can not believe addis ababa universities does not have software engineers. Shame

      @Gezaee you are absolutely right that no single university back in Ethiopia has a good website…actually i live in Europe I have visited most of the countries in EU, every country has its own language. All countries use their own language in their websites some of them use English as second option…Ethiopia has to do the same… building a website and updating information is not such a big deal at least in university level…we have to learn from the deduction of 3 points by FIFA because of the lack of organized data

      • Gezaee says:

        Thank you Alex for understanding me; The woyanes are throwing stones on me for telling the truth.

        To build website you do not need university level studies. Any computer and programming savy from high school can develop a website. In some of the universities they have a notice which says the website is under construction as if it is like the Hidassie dam? You visit again after one year, they say it is still under construction? It looks in Ethiopia developing a website takes many years like building a Nuclear station? kkk

        Here a website is developed in one day or less. You do not need any resources except a host which is very cheap.

      @Gezaee & Alex,

      How can one be so dumb and still claims and acts like an intellectual? All you do is criticize, condemn, belittle and bitch. You’re comparing AA University with others of enormous resources. You act like the monkey which saw her image in the mirror and said “who is that ugly creature?”. Why do you think others have more responsibility than you do to solve problems? For you it is OK to point finger, ridicule and criticize others without any fact checking, sympathy or common sense. What have you done to make anything better outside looking down on those who are doing their duties heroically despite scarcity of resources? The least you can do is be supportive. But unfortunately it sounds like it is much easier for you to be a burger-munching, Heineken-gulping, talk master. SHUT UP!

      • Alex says:

        @Tazabi dont be angry..you have to know that for the betterment of our country the government has to be criticized day and night from all direction

      • Gezaee says:

        Tazabi, you are still the money and who is to be blamed? You government stole 12 billion dollars since 2000 up to now.

        Who has an appetite to work with thieves? Seriously, Ethiopians government is made of thieves only? For citizens to contribute there must be motivation. But your policies are against citizens national feelings. I have no appetite to work for this government. Otherwise, if these government was not thieves, I would do all I can. Note: there are Ethiopians outside who can turn around Ethiopia in technology? but the problem is no one wanted to go back and work with thieves. There are people who says they could go back to work for free to contribute, but they hate the government. The government does not like intellectuals. There are 2000 Ethiopians Professors across the world. Imagine if there was good system in Ethiopia where everyone can go back and do what they can?

        If I have had inspiration to go back I could be Lalibela of this age. But who would go to Ethiopia to work with thieves where there is no accountability and responsibility? No ways, who likes to lose freedom and go to hell on earth?

        • Gezaee says:

          typo correction: you are stealing the money

        • Tazabi! says:

          @Gezae & Alex,

          One thing that seems to elude you and some is, why do you have to expect someone else to pave the way for you? Why don’t you try paving it yourself? Your lame excuse not to have motivation doesn’t rhyme with logic. If someone has the skills and resources, it’s his/her patriotic duty to contribute to his/her motherland’s development endeavors. They owe it to Ethiopia and its people. If you have the means as you make it sound like and still don’t want to invest in your country, I guess it is your choice. But you should cut off your constant diatribes and political statements as they are getting older and older by the day.
          Corruption, theft, embezzlement, etc are universal problems and there are not endemic to Ethiopia. They need to be taken head on. They don’t need to be taken as excuses. You have got a valid point there but it shouldn’t be used as a cause for non participation. Remember every word you write or say against involvement and participation is a sabotage against your people. Are you a saboteur or a positive contributor? I hope you being the later.

          The freedom that you’re enjoying is not your making. A lot of people died for it. The lack of it back home that you and many others suffer from is not meant to be taken for granted. No one will hand it to us on a silver platter. We get to go out and earn it. As a matter of fact many fought for it and still do and sacrificed their lives so their fellow citizens can live free.

          You and I must be part of the equation so it can be solved. Criticizing from the side lines disqualifies us automatically out of the equation hence playing zero role in solving it. Remember every word we write or say against involvement and participation is sabotage against our own people. Are you a saboteur or a positive contributor? I hope you being the later.

    this is not problem of the government it is problem of ethiopians if you ask why i am saying this here is the reason the gov. has employed enough man power who claim to be profesional in the fields but they are not doing what is expected from them lets take the example Mr. Gezaee raised AU has more than enough IT employes from top IT manager till down It technicians and assistants so what do you think the problem that their website is down most of the time do we have to blame the Gov. for this not at all it we the citizens should work hard with love of our country this is one choice the other one the Gov has is to fire all the lazy ethios and hire foreigners then increase the unemployment. lets ask our selves one question ” why are we heros only in war?”
    can’t we be development engine for our country ??? I don’t know but i Have a dream one day to see ethio’s being hard working and country loving

    • Gezaee says:

      Kebrarw, it is not the web is down; The web is poorly developed; the web is a dead web with no life and with no information at all. Firs the website wrong because it is written poor English. If you go to any universities website, you will find everything you want. For instance if you wanted to apply for undergraduate or postgraduate, PHDs, you will find all the information you need and the courses and requirements. But Addis ababa University you can go and check programs? you click? there is nothing.

      In Ethiopia the audiences are Ethiopians; they are not British; but the website is written in poor English. Who is the audience for the website? It is written for English speakers only? It is not even appealing for those of us who speak English.

    Finger pointing time should stop now and start looking for the future. We are still top of the group so lets give our player a moral support.
    It doesn’t mean the one responsible for the mistake pay for it. But let see the big picture and focus for the future now.
    We talked about it too much. let start work.
    there are people trying to politicising every thing. one thing i know is foot ball federation is not gov. assigned politician who ruled it. as far as i know FIFA will not allow gov. interval in football

    Gezaee

    You have never accomplished anything for yourself let alone for Ethiopia! You are just ranting everywhere for the simple reason of your insanity! I see you criticizing everything as if you just dropped from the heavens! You abandoned your Ethiopian citizenship , but when your choice went against you, here you are ranting 24/7 nonstop!
    ገዛኢ ምናልባት የኢትዮጵያ ፀበል ሊያድንህ ይችላልና ሂደህ ፀበል ጠጣ!

  6. Gezaee says:

    Mario, you do not qualify to get a response from me and I am ignoring you. You will never get response from me after now. Gezaee is the 21 century man; very civilized man; He can not talk with people like you who are behind time; We are galaxies apart. You need to travel and have life experience to talk with me; This is my last response. Will be ignored after now.

    I need the program of the biology and chemistry department in addis abeba University. I click on the dead buttonless program: But this what I get: This has nothing to do with program, very embarrassing website in this age.

    Rationale for the curriculum

    Nationwide need assessment survey was conducted using questionnaire and interview with employers, alumina, students, and staff members of higher learning institutions. The aim of the survey was to make use of the collected feed back in designing relevant curricula for the B.Sc. program in chemistry.

    The need assessment revealed that the following were major problems that need to be addressed to make the quality of the graduates to the level expected.

    According to the result of the survey, graduates of the old curriculum of chemistry display:
    • Insufficient knowledge of chemistry,
    • Insufficient practical skills
    • Poor communicative skills
    • Poor desire for team work

    Similarly, incoming students exhibit
    • Insufficient basic subject matter knowledge
    • Poor language proficiency
    • Poor comprehensive skills (critical thinking and analytical skills) etc.

    The mode of delivery was described as being characterized by
    • Non interactive teaching methods
    • Uneven coverage of content and allocated credit hours
    • Lack of relevant teaching materials
    • Lack of tailored supportive courses
    • Lack of formative assessment etc

    External factors that contributed to the perceived problems included:
    • Less emphasis was given for science subjects in the university entrance examination
    • Lack of interface between preparatory program and university
    • Unavailability of institution to produce laboratory technicians
    • Mismatch between laboratory groups and existing facilities

    The need for proposing the new B.Sc. curriculum is therefore to address problems from the following sides:
    • Students
    • Stakeholders need
    • Delivery
    • Assessment.

    The result of the need assessment and the fact that chemistry is changing in its

    · Interaction with other disciplines

    · Increasingly complex problems

    · More advanced techniques and instrumentation

    · Working in a global context

    and education is changing

    · to reflect new research in how students learn (e.g., inquiry-based and active learning, team experiences)
    •because student population is becoming more diverse by age, gender, ethnicity and educational background have dictated the urgent need to design a fitting curriculum which ensures production of quality graduates capable of satisfying the stakeholders’ requirements.

    Dear Dawit:

    Please send to addis abeba University the instruction I posted on how to write a website. They just cut and paste it; It is better to learn that way than to have a useless and lifeless website that is very embarrassing.

    Where did you travel though? Your problem is you know nothing except yourself! I have been to 12 countries , I speak 7 languages ….’ What are you talking about? This shows that you are not a normal human being! Mr Gezaee, did you come from another galaxy? How many legs,eyes… Do you have? You must be different with some rough horn like on your head… With a rough & zombie like voices ….! Take it easy broda!
    This will be my last response to you!

    • Gezaee says:

      Alex,

      The bible says: Today’s king is tomorrow dead. Morsi was a powerful man yesterday; today he is gone.

      The dumbest woyanes think they will impose themselves forever; they are making life for themselves hard by imposing their archaic dedebit mentality on the 94 million people.

      I agree I never came across a single woyane who can discuss and listen. But what is benefitting woyanes is diaspora politics which much worse than woyane and that is giving woyane a lease of more life. Anyway, it is matter of time, change will come sooner or later when people say enough is enough.
