NDSF 2015: Etisalat Cliqlite, remedy for examination failures


The Manager, Youth Segment, Etisalat Nigeria, Idiareno Atimomo, has said that Etisalat Cliqlite was designed to promote e-learning in order to enhance students’ overall performance in their examinations, reports ITRealms.

Atimomo, who represented the Vice President, Regulation and Corporate Affairs, Etisalat Nigeria, Mr. Dikko Ibrahim, at the 2015 Nigeria DigitalSENSE Forum on Internet Governance for Development (IG4D) with the theme “Internet Neutrality and Nigerian Internet Users” in Lagos recently, maintained that the company embarked on the Cliqlite platform to renew the interest of the young ones in learning, saying the failure rate in the education system in Nigeria has become alarming.

With student’s performance in Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE), 2014 put at 31.28 per cent pass rate in five subjects or more, including English and Mathematics, which was an indication of a drop from the 38.81 per cent pass rate recorded in 2012 and 36.57 per cent in 2013, Eisalat, ITRealms gathered, has no option as a responsible Corporate citizen than to resort to the designing of Etisalat Cliqlite e-learning platform to ensure better performance by Nigerian pupils and students.

Speaking on “Harnessing the Mobile Internet for learning,” Atimomo said the Tablet is embedded with 14 Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) approved school curriculum text books, Interactive educational videos across different subjects, Parental Control on the tablet with Norton Parental Control App preinstalled, SSCE,  International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) (Cambridge), Universities Matriculations Examination (UME), past Questions, IGCSE Textbooks (Optional), Over 25 Educational Apps and games, Screen Time App: Preset times when you want your child to have access to the Tablet. Outside of the set time, the tablet shuts down automatically and can only be opened using the password set by the Parent, ITRealms reports.

He said that parental control is key in the designing of the phone, with, the parents, apart from being able to  register the number of calls that can get through the phone, they are also capable of monitoring the site the child can visit, ITRealms’ crew learnt.
