Zaria-based private school introduces e-learning

16 October 2013, 20:39

Zaria - A Zaria-based private school, Dagama's Legacy Group of Schools, says it has  has introduced e-learning into its curriculum, to ensure that its students are ICT compliant.

The school’s Director, Michael Dagama, who made this known to journalists on Wednesday in Zaria, said:``All the branches of the school have a network of not less than 20 computers for practicals, to mould the child to become computer literate.

 "We want to mould the child to be able to stand anywhere in the world and compete favourably with other students.’’

According to him, the school management realised that the present world is technology-based and that ICT is a tool required by any child to survive.

"Remember, almost all tertiary institutions in Nigeria have now introduced computer-based examinations as a means of evaluation of any student who wishes to gain admission through the post-UTME.’’

The director said that the school was already imparting in its students the necessary evaluation techniques in computer-based education.

"We have what we call online assignments where students are given questions online and and are required to send their answers to the teachers’ e-mail addresses.

"This is with a view to making sure that our students become familiar with online activities."

Dagama said that the school had also established an e-library for the benefit of students and staff.
