Telecom giant MTN, Chinese-based Huawei Technology and Nigeria’s Baze University on Wednesday, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote 5G-powered learning and teaching innovations.
This followed the launch of MTN-Baze University 5G2Business, expected to enable the institution to leverage fifth-generation technology to transform learning and administration.
Wednesday’s tripartite partnership would also open more doors to creative access to quality education, Baze University’s acting Vice Chancellor, Prof. Kathleen Okafor, told journalists at the launch held at the school.
She said the initiative would unleash the full applicability of 5G, which offered faster connectivity to expand the institution’s academic and administrative activities.
This also included a more collaborative learning experience for students, while helping to upload videos by the lecturers without voice loss for virtual learning.
Applauding MTN and Huawei for agreeing to partner with the school, Okafor said the initiative would enhance its smart classroom concept and reduce course durations through ready access to lecture notes, especially for online programmes.
Okafor said,”The institution will strengthen lectures, course works, assignment sharing and instant feedback from students.
“The new programme will ensure that online learning creates smooth holographic access.”
