    Globacom and the University of Ilorin have entered into a partnership to take tertiary education in Nigeria to a higher level as they have agreed to initiate a platform where students can access their lectures and lecturers from anywhere in the world.

    The communications will be accessed through the students’ hand-held devices or large computer screens. The plan to revolutionise the classroom experience of Nigerian university students will ride on Globacom’s vast nationwide voice and data infrastructure.

    This was the outcome of a visit to the Mike Adenuga Towers, Globacom’s corporate headquarters, by principal officers of the university led by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali, recently.
    Ambali rated Globacom as the number one telecommunications service provider in the country with the capacity to deliver end-to-end solutions for every sector of the economy.

    He said that Globacom had changed the face of the telecoms industry in Nigeria with its huge investments in technology.
    Globacom is the official telecoms partner of the University of Ilorin, providing direct and exclusive internet connection to the whole university community. Ambali applauded the existing relationship the institution already has with the company and requested that the relationship be upgraded to meet the demands of teaching in the internet age.

    Receiving the delegation, Globacom’s Chief Commercial Director, Prabhat Aggarwal, explained that the telecoms company had the richest experience in providing integrated telecommunication services to organisations in the country. According to him, Globacom is the official telecoms carrier for most of the leading firms in Nigeria, including the oil and gas sector, banking, manufacturing, food and beverage sectors as well as government establishments .

    “With this track record and given our wide network running on microwave infrastructure, optic fiber rings and the Glo 1 submarine cable, it will not be difficult to provide integrated voice and data services to your community for academic, administration and security purposes,” Aggarwal told Vice Chancellor and his team.

    The university’s delegation included the Head Of Consultancy Services, Prof Olugbenga Mokuolu, Director of ICT, Dr. Jeleel Ojuade, and Acting Director, Advancement Centre, Prof. Ahmed Musa.
    Globacom explained to the team that the company already had an electronic learning (eLearning) template that could put all faculty curriculum, lecture notes and cached teaching sessions for up to 5 years on the intranet or internet for the academic community to access at will from anywhere.

    This is in addition to video streaming, local intranet and extranet, web-based learning plus teleconferencing facilities which can make a live connection between students in a class and a lecturer from anywhere in the world.
    Globacom offered to also provide the University community with internal communication solutions including Closed User Group (CUG), fixed wireless connections and Bucket GPRS services which provides bulk data bundle for the entire community and PABX connections.
