ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES FOR FIRST AND SECOND YEAR STUDENTS
First and Second-year students will be on the Microsoft Teams virtual learning platform that has been secured for tuition (both synchronous and asynchronous) and assessment. All academic activities will be done on the virtual platform.
i. Each student is highly encouraged to secure a smartphone, tablet computer, laptop computer, desktop computer or a nearby café to aid access to the virtual learning platform.
ii. Each student should download and install Microsoft Teams on his/her gadget.
iii. Entry credentials shall be sent by text message to each registered student.
iv. A calendar for academic activities on the virtual platform shall be made available to students.
v. There will be a series of orientations and webinars on the Microsoft Teams, the new Learning Management System (LMS) for the College.
vi. Arrangements are being made with MTN to facilitate internet data for all students.
vii. To make the exercise very successful, each student is to update his/her primary contact on the student portal. Non-MTN users are advised to acquire MTN SIM cards with MTN as the service provider and update their primary contacts on the portal accordingly.
NB. STUDENTS MUST USE THEIR PERSONAL ACTIVE MTN NUMBERS AND SHOULD DESIST FROM USING NUMBERS THAT RATHER BELONG TO THEIR RELATIVES AND FRIENDS.
viii. Until the start of the Microsoft Teams, the online tuition on the existing virtual platforms continues for first and second-year students.
ix. STUDENTS SHOULD IN THEIR OWN INTEREST MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO SERIOUSLY TAKE PART IN THE ONLINE TUITION.
x. Students are entreated to study their Course Modules in addition to the online tuition in preparation for the Mid and End of Semester Examinations.
xi. Coordinators, Supervisors and the SRCs are kindly to ensure dissemination of this notice to all first and second-year students and are to ensure compliance.
NOTE: IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY THAT THERE WILL BE ANY FORM OF FACE-TO-FACE MEETING FOR FIRST AND SECOND YEAR STUDENTS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SEMESTER. HENCE, STUDENTS ARE ENTREATED TO TAKE THE VIRTUAL PLATFORM MADE AVAILABLE VERY SERIOUSLY FOR COURSEWORK AND TO PREPARE FOR BOTH MIDSEMESTER EXAMINATIONS AND END-OF-SEMESTER EXAMINATION. THE STUDENTS LOAN FACILITY IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR THOSE IN NEED FINANCIALLY TO APPLY NOW.
These are not normal times, as such I entreat all students to comply with the above directives and stay protected.
Thank you for compliance.
