Edo University, Iyamho has concluded its 2019/2020 academic session online on its CANVAS LMS due to the COVID-19 pandemic and has scheduled to hold its post UTME screening exercise on Thursday to admit students for the 2020/2021 academic session.
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Emmanuel Aluyor, said the completion of the 2019/2020 academic session online was in line with the university’s calendar, which was hinged on the acquisition and utilisation of the Canvas – Learning Management System despite the COVID-19 pandemic, adding that the institution would resume on November 16.
The university is among the very few universities in the world where academic activities did not shut down due to the Coronavirus and this is in the belief that the university is set up to find solutions to challenges.
The university has been hailed by stakeholders in the education sector for the use of Canvas Leaning Management System, which the university believed would continue to serve as assurance against academic disruptions should the pandemic persist.
The Registrar, Dr. Isoken Ogboro, noted that in line with the observance of the COVID-19 protocols of the Federal Government, the school is ready to resume academic activities but that if the pandemic continues, the university will continue its academic activities on its CANVAS LMS.
