FCT students to access education online




THE Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) is set to make education more accessible for residents through the establishment of e-education platforms in all public schools in Abuja.

This was disclosed in a statement released by the FCTA on Tuesday.

According to the statement, FCTA Education Secretary Dani Dahir El-Katuzu said during the Executive Committee meeting held on Monday that students unable to attend classes physically would be able to join virtually when the platforms become fully operational.

El-Katuzu also disclosed that students’ performance could be monitored by parents and guardians online.

“It is not only making it possible for parents to check the results of their wards online but also making students who may not be physically available in the school due to some challenges to attend lessons from home.

“We want to operate an e-education whereby our lesson plans, our scheme of work and our lesson notes are all online so that we can supervise without having to physically visit the schools. These are all things that are in the pipeline. In fact, we have gone into the advanced stage of making these happen,” he said.

The education official also noted that the innovation was a fallout of the COVID -19 pandemic.

“In fact, it was prompted by the situation where our schools had to be closed down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That is why we created avenues where students can attend lectures from their homes and that prompted the e-attendance, the smart schools and the rest,” El-Katuzu explained.
