The Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufa’i, said in Abuja on Monday that the Nigerian Universities Electronic Teaching and Learning Platform had been unveiled in 12 public universities.
Rufa’i spoke at a meeting with Task Teams for the 2013 Mid-Term Review of the four-year strategic plan for the development of the education sector.
She said that the platform would support integration of ICT in teaching, learning and research processes in the institutions.
“This initiative is the first phase in a programme, which is expected to cover 78 federal and state universities in the country.
“This will enable the remote learning and exchange of information among these institutions with each of the institution having access to local digitised content through the virtual library,’’ she said.
The minister added: “we are also supporting our lecturers in the higher institutions of learning to attend local and international conferences to enhance collaboration and research.’’
