No fewer than 110 senior staff (Academic and

Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, have taken part in
this year’s Information and Communication
Technology training programme organized by the
Nigerian Communication Commission, NCC,

Programme for Tertiary Institutions, ADAPTI”.
According to Dr. Ikechukwu Adinde of the Digital
Bridge Institute (a subsidiary of NCC), the five-
day training, which took place in the Computer-
Based Test Centre of AAUA, the programme was
organized to train academic and non-academic
staff of tertiary institutions on basic ICT office
productivity tools, including the intranet, internet,
use of e-teaching and e-learning facilities.
A cross-section of the participants who spoke
with the Information Unit of the University last
week Wednesday (Day 3 of the training), said
the programme was very impactful and thanked
NCC for the initiative.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration),
Prof. Francis Oyebade, said the essence of
programme was to enhance the capacity of staff
for effective service delivery.
Prof. Oyebade said, “The essence of this training
is capacity building. We have decided to
continue to update ourselves on all of the
required tools to carry out our assignments for
effective service delivery. It has been
tremendous. Even those that are very versatile in
ICT tool have found something new. And some of
us who are still learning the ropes have been
able to gain a lot.
“AAUA is fortunate to be among the selected
tertiary institutions. I think we are the only state-
owned University so selected by the NCC for the
training, and we are very grateful to the
Commission.”
The DVC noted that the training was designed as
a train-the-trainer programme and urged all the
participants, who were drawn from all
Departments and Units of the University, to pass
the knowledge acquired onto their colleagues.
He urged the participants to put all they have
learnt to practice.
The Director of Student Work-Study Scheme, Dr.
(Mrs.) Iyabo Omoniyi, said, “This is a welcome
development. Though I am not a novice in ICT, I
have learnt new things that are very vital. Now
when somebody brings a computer to me, I know
what to do to find information about such a
computer. Now I know other important sites to
visit to get scholarly and dependable information.
In all, the programme has been very impactful.”
Mrs. Temilade Olotuah of the Information
Communication Technology and Application
Centre, said, “The programme has been very
impactful. Even those of us in ICTAC have
acquired more knowledge regarding ICT and it
will do us good if we can organize a mini
workshop when we get back to our various units,
such that those are not here can benefit.”
Mr. David Aladejebi, a lecturer in the Department
of Social Science Education, said, “This is a well-
organized training that is coming at the right
time. Value has been added to the participants ngstudents.com
who have really submitted themselves to the
training. I have taken time to submit myself to
the training so that I will be able to pass the
knowledge acquired to those that are not here.”
