The Lagos State University (LASU) has developed a digital platform to cater to the processing of the results of students in its postgraduate programmes.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, commissioned what the authorities named the Lagos State University Postgraduate School Results’ Processing Portal to formally mark the LASU PG School’s transition from paper-based manual processes to full digitalisation.
She commissioned the portal and declared it open for use at a High-level Interactive Session with Postgraduate Programme Coordinators organised by the Directorate of ICT in conjunction with the PG School at the Senate Chamber, Babatunde Raji Fashola Senate Building, main campus, Ojo.
Speaking at the programme, Olatunji-Bello reiterated her desire to fully digitalise the operations of the university in line with best global practices and ensure the provision of seamless service delivery in the university.
In her words, “You will realise that our administration is fully committed to the provision of seamless and efficient services to staff, students and the general public and had launched many digital applications in showing commitment to achieving this hence, the digitalisation processes of not only the Postgraduate School but of many other services of the university.
She enthused that “the digitalisation drive has not only blocked leakages and enhanced efficient service delivery on all fronts, it has also helped to create accurate databases that can and will help management and government in planning for the need of staff and students.”
The physiology professor further added that the newly launched portal remains the only approved platform for PG Results Processing. She said, “This software has been adopted as the only platform to be used for the processing of all Postgraduate results from the 2020/2021 Academic Session and beyond. This will bring an end to the manual computation of results at the PG School, which had been fraught with errors. The management, after consultation with all stakeholders and experts will come up with modalities to digitalise all pre-2019/2020 Postgraduate results.”
Dean of the PG School, Prof. Joseph Olagunju, while delivering a paper titled, “Digitalization of the Postgraduate School: Challenges, Interventions and Prospects”, said that the commissioning of the recently launched Result Processing Portal was in compliance with the directive of the Vice Chancellor that all paper-based transactions, from registration to graduation, be abolished in the operations of the School.
He revealed that prior to his appointment as Acting Dean in 2016, the school was in comatose, having struggled under the weight of the crisis of the years before. The series of interventions he and his team put in place, he said, brought about a quick turn-around, ensuring that 24,921 students some of whom had been stranded and unable to graduate, eventually did by 2022.
He expressed his happiness that the current university administration has matched actions with words by giving the PGS all the needed support to ensure the actualisation of the digitalisation drive
He listed the introduction of online teaching, introduction of Online Examination Management System with Remote Invigilation, activation of community for Postgraduate Programme Coordinators, establishment of Remote Classroom, establishment of Repositiory and Management Centre, hosting and commissioning of LASUGETITRIGHT plagiarism detection system, deployment of LASU Central Admission Clearance Application for Postgraduates (LACACA-PG) as some of the digitalisation drive of the School.
The training session of the event saw each member of the university management and other senior officials of the university facilitate sessions aimed to bring PG Coordinators across all departments to speed on the new platform.
The programme, which had in attendance deans of faculties, heads of departments and PG School Cordinators, was anchored by the Director, DICT, Prof. Toyin Enikuomehin and Coordinator, CIPPR, Mr. Ademola Adekoya.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please message us on WhatsApp via (+234) 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
