Educational Technology

I have over 10 years of works experience as an educational technologist; my research area and specialization is in animation and e-learning. In have develop one of the most comprehensive learning management systems in Nigeria called NEMS.

NEMS(National Education Management System), NEMS is a cloud-based school solution that helps school administration to automate the flow of information between administrators, teachers and students and provide a platform for parents to monitor the academic progress of their children. The software also makes it easy for seamless conduct of test by schools, corporate organizations and government agencies; using a client/server network to access the system and converting the paper-based test to a better and automated process for more satisfying user experience.

I have also trained and mentor students in basic computer knowledge and computer programming since 2005, training them on variety of topics ranging from Microsoft Office Suits packages, Corel Draw, AutoCAD 2D, Web Design and Programming, recently I have focus only on teaching and mentoring computer programming students because I noticed that learning computer programming can be a very challenging and daunting task. I have taught at several tech schools around Lagos this includes Vizon Computer Institutes (2005-2008), Timglobal Institute of Technology (2013-2014) and Dalewares Institute of Technology (2016-2017). I am currently one of the faculties at Utiva programming school, where I teach PHP programming.

As an educational technologist, I graduated with a B.A(Ed) degree in Fine and Applied Arts with Education from the University of Nigeria, Nnsuka and master M.Ed in Educational Technology from the National Open University of Nigeria.


Fine Artist

Unlike my two other areas of interest or discipline, fine art is a talent that I have been nurturing since when I was a kid, even before I starting primary school I have always have the passion for drawing and always insist I want to be an artist when I grow up, if you doubt me here is a proof (When I was in primary 6, I won the overall best pupil merit award in art in 1997, from an art competition organized by the Ikeja Local Government Educational Board in Lagos), I never allow this talent to die even as I discovered that I can do more or make more money from the tech field I branched to since 2004.

As an artist, I graduated with National Diploma (ND) in General Art from Yaba College of Technology and B.A(Ed) degree in Fine and Applied Arts with Education from the University of Nigeria, Nnsuka I am a member of Society of Nigeria Artits, Lagos state chapter, I did my artist residency programme at IICD Center, Abuja and have both group and solo art exhibition, some are listed below.
