The Federal Government has introduced free e-learning portals for students based in Nigeria.
In April, free e-learning portals were introduced by the Federal Government. These portals are unlike the free e-learning websites that are found online. They cover courses peculiar to skills and personal development.
Students in primary and colleges are mostly in need of studying their school subjects, English, mathematics, etc curriculum-based. Online learning websites such as ALISON and Coursera do not offer curriculum-based education. They rather put more focus on older students.
For school children, the portals serve as a means of getting them acquainted with school subjects, which the long break may have deprived them of. Thus, as a parent, it is vital for your child to partake in the lessons offered online.
Although, schools may have already started online classes with their students, it does not entail they should not also learn via the e-learning portals.
To access these portals, an internet-enabled smartphone (Android) is required.
