Nigerian Varsity Students Register Courses OnlineIt gladdens my heart to read that the University of Lagos, one of the 'top notch' varsities in Nigeria has adopted an internet-based registration system for its students. UnilagFaces reports that the online registration is for year one and two students. Expectedly, there are disapproval from some of the students; but for these students to see the system as a waste of time is totally unexpected.
Considering that many Nigerian students regularly use email and are conversant with online messaging system, I would have guessed that the newly introduced system would be readily adopted by the students. I hope it's a safe assumption that the 'dissenters' are in the minority.
The educational system in Nigeria is light-years away from the norm- both in standard and amenities. The introduction of simple technology such as Internet-based registration system goes a long way in bringing the college closer to world standard. Last year, a Nigerian wireless telephone provider donated a digital library to the same university.
