Covenant University launched an app that serves as an educational platform for learning, obtaining academic information and also as a social platform for its students.With the rebranding of the institution which involves the provision of Samsung tablets to every student, the app seeks to foster an environment that encourages intellectual capacity building.
The EduSocial app was developed by Softcom, a technology company whose team comprises of alumni of Covenant University and therefore has an understanding of the vision of the institution.
According to the Registrar of Covenant University, Dr.Olumuyiwa Oludayo, this will provide an opportunity for aspiring student developers and programmers to develop applications and also have a ready market to test it and get feedback before launching it fully.
Mr Yomi Adedeji, an alumnus of Computer Science from Covenant University and the CEO of Softcom also pointed out that although available in only Covenant University for now, the partnership between Softcom, Samsung and Covenant University is just a step towards truly raising a new generation of leaders for Africa. Despite the challenges associated with students of the University not using mobile phones, the availability of internet and the introduction of the EduSocial app is a move towards conquering these challenges and also maximizing the opportunities presented by these challenges.
