Business a.m. - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION -

NIGE­RIAN IN DIGENOUS TELCO, Globa­com, has an­nounced the avail­abil­ity of a new ser­vice dubbed Glo Smart Learn­ing Suite aimed at help­ing to meet the e-learn­ing needs of Nige­rian stu­dents and in­sti­tu­tions.

In a state­ment made avail­able to Busi­ness A.M., Glo said the Smart Learn­ing Suite is made up of both an En­ter­prise Re­source Plan­ning (ERP) and a Learn­ing Man­age­ment Sys­tem (LMS). The telco said that the plat­form was de­signed to help un­der­pin learn­ing, teach­ing and school man­age­ment, not­ing that it is also a vi­able on­line ed­u­ca­tion plat­form.

Ac­cord­ing to Globa­com, some of the ben­e­fits of the ser­vice in­clude: “bun­dled free ac­cess to the learn­ing por­tal for stu­dents and teach­ers, full fea­ture plat­form to ac­cess to­tal learn­ing and school man­age­ment, in­clud­ing abil­ity to learn from any­where, live classes, per­for­mance re­port­ing, ac­cess for par­ents and stu­dents, live test and ex­am­i­na­tions, chat video con­fer­enc­ing, amongst oth­ers.”

The com­pany also noted that the tool will pro­vide an al­ter­na­tive learn­ing re­source for pri­mary, sec­ondary and ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tion stu­dents, as well as pro­fes­sion­als who want to boost their skills and ca­pa­bil­i­ties, adding that the plat­form is also geared at en­hanc­ing skill devel­op­ment which will in turn boost ca­pac­ity build­ing.

“The Glo Smart Learn­ing Suite is a cus­tom­iz­a­ble plat­form which of­fers rich fea­tures in­clud­ing live classes, on­line tests and ex­am­i­na­tions, per­for­mance re­port­ing, course reg­is­tra­tion and blended learn­ing (On­line/ Off­line). The plat­form will be cus­tom­ized for schools with their spec­i­fied look and feel (colours and logo) at zero cost to each school and help stu­dents whose ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions are shut due to COVID-19 pan­demic to ful­fill their ed­u­ca­tional needs,” the state­ment read.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the ERP ca­pa­bil­i­ties will help schools to cre­ate ser­vices in­clud­ing, cus­tomised dash­boards, Hu­man Re­sources, vis­i­tor pass, pay­roll, timetable, stu­dent clear­ance and re­port­ing, to men­tion a few.

Glo said that schools need to take ad­van­tage of the Glo Smart Learn­ing Suite to help pro­vide smoother op­er­a­tions, ad­min­is­tra­tion and learn­ing for stu­dents.

To ac­cess the learn­ing suite, stu­dents are to pay a yearly li­cense fee of N10,000. Globa­com will bear the cost of data ac­cess for stu­dents who pay for a li­cense.
