In a bid to assist students with their studies, Babcock University, a premier private University in Nigeria has become the first university to deploy mentored e-Learning solutions.
The University at a launching ceremony in Ogun state entered into partnership with New Horizons to deploy the mentored e-Learning solution. At the ceremony, Professor Kayode Makinde, who just assumed office as the Vice Chancellor of the University declared the ICT Resource centre open stating that the centre was part of a larger training partnership between the institution and New Horizons aimed at resolving the twin problem of unemployment and poverty amongst the youths by equipping them with ICT skills that are currently in demand. He added that the centre would shorten the employment search drive and empower those who have the entrepreneurial spirit to become wealth creators after graduation. The New Horizons mentored e-Learning solutions provides powerful capabilities that enable higher education institutions to improve student outcomes. The software suite is a mission critical application that combines learning by reading, doing and hearing. The objectives of New Horizon are to propel Nigeria into the forefront of IT countries in the world. It's been in operation for over 24 years and has over 312 training centres in 60 countries. Its Nigerian office was established to cater for the IT Training needs of Nigerians.
