The Kano State Government has announced plans to set up an e-learning centre in each of its 44 local government areas before the end of 2014. Alhaji Tajudeen Gambo, Kano State Commissioner for Education, made the disclosure at an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Kano. The commissioner explained that the project, which is in collaboration with a Canadian non-governmental organisation, is part of the state’s plan to promote e-learning. “By 2015, JAMB examination is going to be done electronically. So you have to ensure that all your students taking the examination are computer literate otherwise they will not pass the examination. The e-learning centres will be opened in each of the local government areas with no fewer than 30 computers in each centre,’’ he said. Gambo also explained that Kano State would provide 61 computers in every secondary school, adding that 100 of such schools have been identified for the first phase of the programme. “Computer study is now compulsory in all our secondary schools from this year, hence the decision to provide the facilities. The state government has awarded contract worth N65 million for the e-learning programme at the Governor’s College in Kano under its pilot project.”
