Total telecoms solutions provider, Globacom, has been showcasing its avant-garde products and services especially its rich bouquet of educational products, at the on-going National Schools Fair. The Fair has held at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos and the Airport Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos in the last two Saturdays respectively and will hold in Abuja this Saturday 23rd June and Saturday, 30th June in Port Harcourt.
In a paper titled “Solutions for Educational Institutions in Nigeria” delivered at the Fair, Globacom’s Tega Agofure of the Enterprise Projects and Innovation Unit charged school proprietors in the country to avail themselves of the products and services specifically designed for them by Globacom to push the boundary of education to loftier heights. He advised school proprietors and other stakeholders in the education sector to, as a matter of urgency, connect their schools to the internet in order to enjoy the numerous opportunities and limitless possibilities available on the information super highway.
He said Globacom would assist schools through its data centre to host e-Learning platforms which would provide instant access to course materials and relevant content for students. He further stated that Glo has already created a special campus bundle which includes free voice and internet to facilitate communication among teachers and students.
He said Globacom can assist schools to develop campus wi-fi service with access control that would prevent students from visiting unhealthy sites that could lead to moral debauchery. Mr. Agofure said Globacom has other value-adding products like “Personal Trackers” which parents can use to monitor their children and wards to prevent kidnapping and other criminal acts. He enjoined Nigerians to go to the Gloworld shops or Glo zones nearest to them to access these products.
