University of Ibadan (UI) has commenced data-efficient course in its Open Distance eLearning (ODeL).
The course webinar, according to the management of the institution, was designed for excellence in teaching. It said it was similar to Zoom and Google Meet.
The Director of the centre, Prof. Emmanuel Omobowale, said the institution collaborated with telecommunications service providers and an innovative educational technology firm, Edutechportal Solutions, to deploy the top-notch solution to its students.
According to him, “The course webinar is easy-to-use and data-efficient with no limit on hosts/courses that can take place simultaneously, no cap on the population of participants/students that can take the online classes.
“All registered students, irrespective of their population, have right and access to comfortably participate and engage in their registered course, and take the front seat with their smart device.”
Omobowale thanked the management under the leadership of Prof Kayode Adebowale for its support, noting that the university was leveraging on technology to bring distance into a virtual space where communication between content experts and learners was practically seamless, accessible and affordable for the teaching-learning enterprise.
He said, “The public can visit the university website (https://modeofstudy.ui.edu.ng) for further information.”
