OOU to upscale its online teaching


The outbreak of coronavirus may have caused inevitable disruptions in educational institutions globally. But for Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ago-Iwoye, the pandemic has given new impetus to take a giant leap and make inroads into online teaching.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ganiyu Olatunji Olatunde, who confirmed the digitization drive of the University, said necessary technological equipment is being purchased and installed on campus to achieve the in-demand online instruction model.

Olatunde stated that, already, the Governing Council has given approval for the University to fully go digital, adding that the institution would soon be one of the best in Nigeria in terms of online teaching.

In an attempt to contain COVID-19, governments all around the world closed educational institutions earlier in the year. The widespread shutdowns meant students were out of school for a long period of time and everyone had to readjust and adapt to a new normal.
