Covid19: LASU VC Encourages Students to Study Online: Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun (SAN), Vice-Chancellor, Lagos State University (LASU), has advised students of the university to keep learning during the period of Lockdown via the online platform.
Prof. Fagbohun, who spoke to News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) on Thursday said that the university is putting things in place in order to kick start hitch-free online platforms for students to study.
He made it known to the agency that the platforms will include WhatsApp, dropbox, static pages on the varsity’s website, Google classroom and free conferences, among others.
Of recent, he had a meeting with the deans, Provost of College of medicine and some other stakeholders of the university via the online platform and they talked on the modalities of setting up the “platforms”.
“We agreed that the final year students should be assigned their project work so that their supervisors can engage them while they are at home.
We also have a LASU assignment portal designed by LASU Computer Science Department for students and a Whatsapp platform to conduct tutorials for all the lecturers who will be engaged in online teaching.
“Tomorrow (April 10), we are having another meeting with all faculties on how far they have gone with the online lectures,” he said.
Fagbohun said that the idea was to continually engage LASU students and keep them learning until school reopened.
He was optimistic many of the students would engage the different platforms.
The VC urged Nigerian students to abide by the efforts of the federal and state governments to contain COVID-19 spread.
