Software firm, Microsoft launch portal to digitalise schools
Software company, Dynamiss Solutions Limited and technology giant, Microsoft, have launched an interactive virtual learning portal, LP+365, for Nigerian schools to allow for seamless exchange of ideas between students and teachers as well as connect them to the global digital education system.
Speaking at the event in Lagos, the Country Director, Dynamiss, Mr. Lolu Elegbe, decried the near non-existence of digital educational process in the country, adding that the sad reality in the nation’s education sector was that students, teachers, schools and parents were far behind in terms of technology and digital knowledge.
He noted that the dearth of digital learning materials and expertise had been unhelpful to Nigeria’s unpalatable story.
“What this application does is that it starts to teach students from a young age to university level. So, we are also making sure that the ones in the university that are about to enter the job market have that digital skill sets they need. We are also making sure that the younger ones who are digital natives, grow up seamlessly with it.”
“We are selling the software to schools at a discounted rate with Microsoft support because the application is built on a Microsoft platform which transforms Word, Excel, Power Point, One Note and every other package we use in our day-to-day activities into our school virtual classroom. What Microsoft is also doing is that it is adding its imagined academy to become part of our offerings. So anybody who uses this application gets free access to the imagined academy which is Microsoft repository of all their training certification,” Elegbe said.
