The pivotal role of the university in producing the levels of human capital required for countries to succeed in the globalised ‘information economy’ has been expressed in terms of higher education’s ability to provide the labour market with information-aware and information-adept graduates. Developments in multimedia, increased communications and other ICT innovations are obviously key components of the information economy. Thus, it is imperative for the Obafemi Awolowo University that prides itself as the leading ICT University in Nigeria to empower her students.
The ICT training for fresh undergraduate students aims to impart basic ICT skill into the students right from the onset of their educational career in OAU. New ICT initiatives are being introduced to the University. These include: student e-mail services, smart classrooms, multimedia driven lecture delivery, intra-university voice communication ‘Keedu’, increasing online engagement, course registration, TCC project, e-assessment, inter-university online collaboration (OAU and Unilag) and techno-preneurship.
These are in addition to various existing services such as online meetings and interviews via telepresence and video, conference, advanced search, e-library, internet access etc.
These services require basic ICT skill to navigate and derive maximum benefit. The purpose of this training is therefore to educate the newly admitted students on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as they will continue to apply the skills acquired from the training throughout their stay in Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) and after their first degree education.
The training attracts its own ‘Certificate of Participation’ therefore eliminating the need for the students to patronize road side computer schools after graduation in desperate search for certificate of computer training which today is a pre-requisite for job placement in most organizations.
