The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Prof AbdulGaniy Ambali, has revealed how the introduction of the Tablets of Knowledge (Opon Imo) into schools by the Government of Osun influenced the decision by his institution to make it mandatory for every undergraduate of the university to have a tablet in the school.
The vice chancellor, who stated this during his visit to Governor of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in Osogbo said the university authorities realised that by the time students coming to universities from schools such as those in Osun gained admission, they would have been knowlegable in the use of modern technology devices. He said to introduce them to any standard less than what they were used to would be wrong.
He revealed how the university adoption of technology had helped it advance the course of leaning and commended the governor for having the vision to introduce Osun pupils to technology.
At the University of Ilorin, you will not see any board other than electronic boards in our lecture rooms. In our Senate, we operate a paperless administration.â€ the VC said.
Ambali told Aregbesola that the university was the most patronized at the moment with about 107,000 applicants applying to the institution in the last admission exercise.
An elated Aregbesola, commended the university managemnet for its stable educational calendar which had endeared it to many Nigerians.
