In a bid to further engage the students of the institution, Lagos State University LASU, Ojo has launched online platforms for students of the institution to engage themselves in learning during the lockdown period

The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, disclosed this on Thursday 9 April, 2020 in Lagos.

Prof. Fagbohun noted that the initiative was aimed at engaging LASU students and keeping them learning until schools reopened.

He said that the platforms include WhatsApp, Drop Box, static pages on the varsity’s website, Google classroom and free conferences, among others.

“Recently, LASU management had a meeting online with all deans of faculties, Provost of the LASU College of Medicine and the Dean, Post-Graduate School to agree on the modality for online lectures for our students.

“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,” the VC said.

“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 the online teaching,” he added.

He therefore urged Nigerian students to abide by efforts of the federal and state governments to contain COVID-19 spread.
