UNILORIN Battles Transportation Challenges, Begins Virtual Classes

The University of Ilorin has assigned 500 user accounts with 300-capacity zoom licences to various faculties and departments for the immediate commencement of virtual classes.

Wahab Egbewole, the institution’s vice-chancellor, said this in a statement by Unilorin spokesman Kunle Akogun.

He said the virtual classes would run simultaneously with physical classes.

“We have also developed a virtual class schedule for courses with class sizes of about 1,000, 3,000, and 5,000 students, using the large capacity zoom licences,” Mr Egbewole explained.

“Physical delivery of lectures/practical sessions in classrooms/laboratories are very important and should be consciously sustained.”

The vice-chancellors said this was in the wake of the transportation challenges facing the students and staff of the university.

He said the management rolled out several measures to mitigate the effect of the situation on the students in particular.

“These included the directive to the Timetable and Room Usages Committee to adjust the lecture timetable to make it more flexible. The management also renewed the university’s zoom licences to activate the virtual lecture option,” Mr Egbewole added.
