It was Nelson Mandela that said that education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
More than ever before, e-learning is fast gaining acceptance in Nigeria and globally in recent times, and especially in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. There is a growing interest in digital learning platforms by both learners and tutors alike as an alternative to physical classroom and chalkboard learning.
Despite these possibilities, only very few schools have resorted to distance learning. This is because, although it is relatively cost-effective, most schools aren’t able to implement it. Interestingly, distance learning does not incorporate the factors of classroom-based learning such as transport costs, learning resources, special equipment, heavy salaries and the likes. It, however, bears on data-enabled smartphones and laptops alongside consistent power supply, which is hard to come by for Nigerian students, especially those from low-income backgrounds.
As distance learning might not so be feasible, e-learning websites would allow students to learn school work, outside the four walls of the school, irrespective of whether school opens or not. Education Platforms offer a flexible and convenient way for teachers and students to work. Educational Platforms help parents and educators make the most of online technology to educate their children or students. Educators are using technology to engage students in the learning process, and numerous studies have shown evidence of increased interest to learn when digital devices are incorporated into the learning environment.
