Online Lecture: ASUU blasts Education Minister, Says he is not Properly Educated.

The Academic Staff Union of the Universities (ASUU) has attacked the Minister for Education, Adamu Adamu, for directing the tertiary institutions across Nigeria to complete the remaining academic calendar via online teaching.
The union described the directive by the Minister as mere political gimmicks and lack of understanding of the situation in the sector he presides over.
Describing the Minister as not “properly educated”, the union stated that no institution in Nigeria has the facility to run an online lecturing system and that such a system entails more than computer vending and supplies.
The University lecturers stated that “Online learning is a type of E-learning that depends entirely on internet-based resources and support system. E-learning requires certain behavioural changes and regulatory adjustments in order to make it work for the learner. It cannot be established by mere Ministerial directive and bureaucratic fiat but through careful and detailed planning, funding and training by those involved. None of these has been done in Nigeria.
