Earlier this week the government of Nigeria launched the country’s first e-curriculum portal for both primary and secondary schools. The e-curriculum is expected to allow students to have greater access to online resources and to give access to better tools to teachers. The Minster of State for Education, Nyesom Wike, spoke at the event:


“The e-curriculum will provide digital access to school curricula, provision of sample teaching resources for teachers to prepare lesson notes, provision of sample learning materials for the learners, provision of a concept management structure for aiding learner resources, students’ access to learner resources, and access to modules for various stakeholders in the e-curriculum materials.”


The minister said the initiative was aimed at aiding both teaching and learning and that the curriculum would help to reduce the rate of failure throughout the WAEC (West African Council) examinations.
