Abstract

The Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) offers a Basic Science course required for all non-STEM majors, which sees a low pass rate, especially among the students enrolled as distance learners. We sought to research why the Basic Science course has a low pass rate across all modes of learning. Through interviews and surveys with students and faculty, we found disinterest and course structure were issues, information that will help NUST improve the course so all students will benefit.
