Equipment Hall Visits Covenant University
Officials from Equipment Hall Limited visited Covenant University on Tuesday, July 7, 2015. They were hosted by the University Management at the Vice-Chancellor’s conference room in Canaan Land, Ota.
While making his presentation at the meeting, the Managing Director, Equipment Hall Limited, Mr. Gbolahan Olayomi said the proposed business partnership with Covenant University would take the ICT department of the University to a greater level in terms of knowledge, training and exposure.
He introduced the Prestigio Multiboard to the University Management. According to him, “The Prestigio multiboard has so much to offer in terms of what can be done in the classroom. A lecturer can interact with students and in return, students can also ask questions”. “This”, he said, “enhances instant feedback.”
Other key features of the Multiboard include the ability to record class sessions, which can be immediately sent as a mail to the students for further reading. “Everything taught can be recorded, saved and sent straightaway to the students”, he said. Another important feature of the Multiboard is the ability to work with any device being used, regardless of the type. You can sit where you are, teach and also relate with your students and audience.
He, further, noted that a spare unit of the board is in place to ensure support in each classroom, adding that necessary steps have been taken to ensure continuous running of the project. Speaking on the benefit the project would afford the University, Mr. Olayomi said that Covenant University students would be at an advantage and be better prepared for the industry. Regardless of the device or gadget, students could connect. Also, in a board room meeting, the Prestigio Multiboard affords the University Management the opportunity to interact with some of the school’s partners remotely.
In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles Ayo, stated, “As a world-class institution, driving a global vision of 1 of 10 in 10, we welcome any idea or product that enhances our vision and is in line with our goals.”
The Vice-Chancellor further said, “Based on what we have seen today, we would like to fine-tune the issue of partnership and MoU, so as to make it suitable for what we require as an institution. Our immediate goal for the year is innovation, product development and nation building come August, so as to see how to contribute to the development of the country.”
Also present at the meeting were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Taiwo Abioye; the Registrar, Dr. Olumuyiwa Oludayo, Chairman, Information and Communication Technology(ICT) Committee, Professor John and other officials from Equipment Hall Limited.
