Foremost financial manager, First Bank, has announced that thousands of students have accessed e-learning solutions it provided in partnership with Roducate and the Lagos State Government during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Speaking on the implementation of the initiative, Dr. Adesola Adeduntan, CEO of First Bank, said, "This solution will see Lagos State offer children in the lower bracket who may not have access to devices or data at home affordable smart phones preloaded with the curriculum. The phones have SIMs and limited data tied only to the Roducate learning product; which means the recipients cannot browse, thereby encouraging safe learning, but they can still submit tests, mock exams, etc."
The Roducate e-learning platform is structured in line with the government's accredited curriculum for primary, secondary and tertiary schools across various fields of academic endeavour such as science, commercials and arts.
Also, it includes tutorial videos to reinforce the learning engagement, as well as assignments and mock exams to test the students' knowledge and progress in the course of studying. In addition, learning on the platform enables one to take notes for quick reference.
The features include podcasts and various games such as brain pulse and monster munch which allow a student to play with other students' online, thereby building relationships and promoting interactive learning.
