Nigeria: Ogun State to Commence Virtual Learning

As schools across Nigeria remain closed due to the Covid-19 crisis, the Ogun State government is set to commence virtual learning for students, teachers, schools, and education leaders across the state to revive its education sector.

A follow up to the Ogun Digiclass project, the initiative will be deployed by an accredited Microsoft education global training partner to ensure a virtual learning community that provides a seamless ecosystem that is collaborative and enables virtual meetings among core independent constituents.

The Special Adviser to the Ogun State Government on Primary, Secondary and Technical Education, Mrs Ronke Soyombo, said in a statement that the project will be implemented by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, and will cut across all public and private schools in the state.

She further stated that the project will provide content ‘for curriculum redesigning, learning resources platform automation and information processing…, assessments/data and digital literacy professional development for its teachers and learners’.

Soyombo urged stakeholders to key into the project and ensure maximum participation in all activities as a sign of support for the government’s efforts to reposition education in the state.
