The administration of the University of Ilorin in Kwara State has announced that it has provided 500 user accounts with 300-capacity zoom licenses to each of its faculties and departments for the immediate start of virtual classes.
Mr. Kunle Akogun, the university’s director of corporate affairs, stated to the media on Monday that the virtual classes will run concurrently with the physical classes.
The statement pointed out that “about 500 user accounts of 300 capacity zoom licences have been assigned to Faculties and Departments for effective virtual delivery of lectures.”
It added, “We have also developed virtual class schedules for courses with class sizes of about 1,000, 3,000, and 5,000 students using the large capacity zoom licences.”
It pointed out that “physical delivery of lectures/practical sessions in classrooms/laboratories is very important and should be consciously sustained.”
It would be recalled that in the wake of the transportation challenges facing the students and staff of the university, the management rolled out several measures to mitigate the effect of the unfortunate situation on the students in particular.
These included the directive to the Time-table and Room Usages Committee to adjust lecture time-table to make it more flexible.
The management also renewed the university’s zoom licences to activate the virtual lecture option, the statement said.
Recall that the university, last week, said that it would begin virtual lecture for the students in the institution to assuage the transportation problem being faced by the students and staff as a result of the bad road and construction work ongoing along the main road leading to the university from the town.
