The management of the International School, University of Ibadan has disclosed that it would from Tuesday 28th April, 2020 commence online learning.
It said this became imperative as the COVID-19 lockdown in Nigeria continues.
As at the time of filing this report, no timetable has been released for the schedule of such classes.
But the school noted that the first phase of the online teaching will commence on WhatsApp, Telegram and website of the school.
Parents were requested to provide functional WhatsApp numbers that can be easily made available to the students.
It added, “Management wishes to solicit for the support of parents/guardians to ensure that all students should effectively participate in the exercise. Stay Safe.”
But for the COVID-19 influenced lockdown of schools, many schools across Nigeria would have resumed for their third term from this week.
With the uncertainty of when normalcy would be restored a few schools have already started developing alternative platforms to learn.
Earlier, various state governments also came up with educational television and radio programmes for students staying at home.
Examining bodies such as the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) even created an interactive learning platform for students preparing for the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE), which it postponed indefinitely due to the health emergency situation.
This is as the National Examinations Council (NECO) had advised students to intensify preparation for its exams, which it had not intended to postpone.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: email@example.com
