USOSA creates e-learning platform for unity schools
Unity Schools Old Students Association (USOSA) has developed an e-learning solution for the 104 unity schools and others across the country.
Study Lab designed the e-learning platform for USOSA as a response to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) crisis.
President-General of USOSA, Lawrence Wilbert, disclosed this on Tuesday when members of the association visited the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, in Abuja.
Noting that the association had been working assiduously for the development of the unity schools, he commended the minister for embarking on an assessment tour of the unity schools.
“I am aware that, at the recent annual meeting you had with the Principals of the Federal Unity Colleges in February 2021, you affirmed the new direction to reform learning, curriculum and pedagogy in Nigeria and highlighted the objective of Quality Education for All. This is sweet to hear.
“We seek collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education to deploy USOSA Virtual Schools (UVS), a comprehensive learning management solution, which the experts in USOSA developed to meet the current needs of our centres of educational excellence and surmount some of the teaching/learning challenges posed by the COVID-19,” he said.
For effective collaboration, he urged the ministry to consider reactivation of the USOSA desk within the ministry, and review of the Schools-Based Management Committee (SBMC) framework to strengthen the role of the alumni association by having the association’s representative, among others.
USOSA Vice President-General, Michael Magaji, explained that the platform was designed to boost students’ performance in the country as part of the association’s contribution to the education sector in Nigeria.
Nwajiuba promised that the ministry would collaborate with the association in the deployment of the e-learning platform.
