When the Covid-19 pandemic first hit the world, as a precautionary measure, educational institutions from all across the world were forced to shut down. Later, when it was realized that the pandemic is here to stay and shutting educational institutes are disrupting the learning of the students, schools switched to remote learning and this included even the Nigerian educational institution. Nigeria took the opportunity of the pandemic to develop its digital education and it successfully used platforms like WhatsApp to organize online classes. Soon, virtual learning became a part of many students. 

 

Pandemic Presented An Opportunity To Nigeria 

Nigeria is working hard to improve its educational infrastructure. Even before the pandemic was hit, Nigeria was working on EdoBEST to improve the public education system and the pandemic forced the government to change the plan and implementation process for good. The financial and technical help by Word Bank further helped to work on this initiative rigorously and digital learning improved. Not only are the students attending virtual classes to continue their learning, but they have also resorted to other creative ways of learning too. FOr instance, many students prefer to play games like Scrabble Word Finder and Word Unscrambler to improve their vocabulary. This is the reason why educational games and edtech companies all across the world are blooming during this tough time.

 

Teachers Started Working With Digital Learning 

Before the students started adapting to digital learning, it was crucial for the Nigerian teachers to make them familiar with digital learning to give their best. Many teachers across different Nigerian institutes successfully managed to learn management techniques and made them familiar with the modern way of teaching and it proved fruitful for the students. Further, the teachers had to be creative to use the digital platform to create the same level of enthusiasm amongst the students for the learning.

Nigerian Government Launches E-Learning Websites

This month the Nigerian government launched an education website, inspire.education.gov.ng for improving the learning accessibility for the students. The website was inaugurated by Malam Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education of Nigeria. The website is powerful enough to handle the traffic of two million Nigerians at a time. The decision to create this website was taken because of the disruption that was caused by Covid-19 for two years. The website is created for both the students and the teachers and it will be accessible for both. However, only registered teachers will have access to this website and the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria will be helping the Ministry of Education with the same. 

 

The website is currently designed to meet the needs, specifically of primary and secondary education and the website will further be accessible in the rural areas and to the communities that do not have internet access. Currently, the website houses more than 4,000 basic level videos, 7,000 secondary level video lessons and in addition to that, it further supports 4,000 audio lessons for secondary levels. 

The content available on the website is designed in a manner that can be broadcast in every media. For instance, content is being designed and made available also in mediums like radio and television. The Nigerian government is also working with Galaxy Backbone in order to expand broadband by laying fibres across the country. The focus is currently on the primary and secondary level schools because most universities have their own websites to support digital learning. However, a new link for the same will be created soon. 

 

The website will support many local languages and agencies have been harnessed for the same with the aim of harnessing local languages. Many local content providers are also working with the government to make the project a successful project. Currently, the formats which are supported by the website are video lessons, audio lessons and ebooks. The different subjects that are supported in the website are agriculture science, basic science, basic technology, civil education, cultural and creative arts, English language, home economics, computer and IT, mathematics, physical and health education, security education, social studies, quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning and creating writing. The subjects available for the secondary level are much more extensive than this, which is for the basic level. Currently, the website houses more than 15,000 resources and the courses available in it matches the curriculum of the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council.
