Samsung, Softcom, Mountain Top University partner to implement MLS

SAMSUNG Electronics West Africa, alongside one of its Information Technology partners, Softcom, has collaborated with Mountain Top University to implement a Mobile Learning Solution (MLS) for teaching and learning within the university.

This collaboration will see Samsung and Softcom make available learning applications and tablets to the university, while providing the security component that enables the university to enforce school policies on the tablets and still ensure that students have access to relevant educational content.

Mountain Top University recently admitted its first 300 students into its undergraduate programmes.

Speaking on the collaboration, the vice chancellor, Professor Elijah Ayolabi, said: “It is very important to us as an institution of higher learning to offer only the best to our students, and what better way can we do so than to introduce the mobile learning programme at the inception of this institution?

“Mountain Top is an ICT-driven institution, and we are glad to have the opportunity to collaborate with the big players in the technology industry on the project.”

In his remarks, director, Business to Business, Samsung Electronics West Africa,  Mr Olumide Ojo, said, “through the mobile learning programme, the university is able to enforce school policies on the device of students by permitting access to only educationally relevant content per time.

“This programme also guarantees time reduction in continuous assessment, easier class management, easy access to learning materials, and real-time collaboration by students from any location amongst other advantages. We are confident that this will change the face of learning in Nigeria.”
