Universities in Mzansi are turning to online resources to help students stay up to date with their work in the national lockdown.
A beautiful Walter Sisulu University (WSU) student, who was simply identified by her handle @LillyMkiva, has taken to social media to share how much data she received for online learning.
She got a message that read:
"Dear WSU student. You have been accredited with 10MB anytime data. To be used until 20 May 2020. No top ups, use wisely for online learning. Stay at home."

South Africans could not believe @LillyMkiva only received 10MB data to study online. Some social media users made jokes about the small amount of data WSU gave to students.
Wits University on the other hand is doing the most for its students. A tweep, @KulanicobrandSA, shared a photo of the data she received from Wits.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously students at UJ called for online learning to be suspended. It resulted in #BoycottOnlineLearningUJ trending on Twitter as social media users voiced their views last week.
Many believed that online learning would be unfair and unreasonable towards those who do not have access to computers and the internet.
