StudyLab 360 Technologies has signed an agreement with the Kwara State Government to deploy its school management and distance learning solution to all the 12 tertiary institutions in the state.
This followed the government’s commitment to reposition the state education sector.
Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq recently declared a state of emergency in the sector and urged stakeholders to define an agenda and programme of interventions to make quality education available and accessible to all.
The declaration berthed the Kwara Education Futures Summit held in August 2021, where experts brainstormed on the future of education in the state.

Consequently, the government swung into action to embrace the use of technology in the general administration and learning.
However, in a statement, the education technology company identified Kwara State University, Kwara State Colleges of Education and Kwara State Polytechnic, among others, as benefitting institutions in the agreement.
The state Commissioner for Education, Senior Ibrahim Sulyman signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on behalf of the state government, while Mr. Obi Brown and Mr. Joseph Ologba signed for the company.
Other dignitaries at the event included the Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Education, Hajia Hafsat Abdulrahman, directors of the ministry and representatives of all the state owned tertiary institutions.
According to the firm, the StudyLab360 solution has robust capabilities offline access for teachers to enter grades and process results, offline access to e-learning materials for students and for exams, student and staff information system.
Other capabilities are school rankings, lesson content provided by teachers all over Nigeria, assessment practice and solutions provided by teachers across Nigeria, fee collection and bursary module, as well as result generation for schools.
