COVID -19: Bowen University launches e-learning
Following the closure of schools amid the Corona Virus Pandemic, the management of Bowen University has directed its staff to switch to the online mode of learning.
Already, the school has asked the teachers to upload teaching materials online and ensure real-time interaction with the students using the Bowen Smart School Hub (SSHUB).
In a statement by the institution’s head of public relations, Toba Adaramola, the university assured that the directorate of digital services would be available to guide students who are yet to register on the SSHUB.
The vice-chancellor, Prof Joshua Ogunwole who restated the university’s commitment to qualitative education explained that the closure of the university was in compliance with the directive of the government following the COVID-19 pandemic ravaging the entire world.
He said while the university is on a short vacation as a result of the directive, normal academic activities continue virtually.
Prof Ogunwole urged parents to give necessary support to their wards while at home for them to partake in the online teaching and learning so that nothing is lost during the time out.
While at home, he advised the students to keep to safety precautions of handwashing, use of hand sanitisers, maintenance of social distance, avoidance of hugging and shaking of hands and above all staying at home.
He prayed that God would heal the land and bring an end to COVID-19.
