The Vice Chancellor, University of Ibadan, Prof. Olufemi Bamiro, has said that the institution will deploy all available information technology communication facilities to enhance learning, teaching and research in the 60 year old university. Bamiro, who spoke while inaugurating the interactive learning boards installed in all the lecture rooms in the institution's Faculty of Education, said that the institution would spare no efforts at repositioning the university. According to him, since ICT has proved to have potential to turn around the fortunes of teaching, learning and research in any institution, the university will spare no efforts at deploying it for UI's academic development.
Speaking on the new learning method, the Dean, Faculty of Education, Professor Morayo Atinmo, said that the faculty spent about N50m on the facility. She added that part of the money was used for the purchase of computers, public address system and power generation set to complement power supply from Power Holding Company of Nigeria.
