STARKHOUSE-CCN Trip: FUTA

Committed TO IMPROVEMENT

February 16, 2018

 

Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) is arguably one of the best universities in Nigeria and just as StarkHouse and CCN are committed to new beginnings of institutions like Ajayi Polytechnic, we are also committed to improving the effectiveness of major institutions like FUTA.

Our major contacts were Adeloye Tolu and Femi Adu. We had been conversing through e-mail for months before the presentation at the Faculty of Science. And just like it was done at Bayero University and Ajayi Polytechnic, Lucia presented the ideals and ideas of CCN to both students and lecturers with more focus on the CCN’s Solutions and Technologies.

During Q&A session, it was clear that the students were fascinated with how dynamic the modules are and the lecturers were also interested because of the level of ease the use of the Technology will make available to them even as it helps them become more productive.

Many lecturers showed interest and indeed demanded for a special session with Dara in order to learn more and be apprised of what is needed to be done afterwards. A pilot has been agreed and this will involve the deployment of a faculty course that is offered by about 14 departments in the University. The reach of the deployment will increase the awareness of CCN’s Cloud Technology and facilitate its acceptance and more robust deployment in the future.

An Educational Revolution in the South-Western and Northern part of the country simultaneously could be what is needed to turn everything around in terms of delivering Quality Education, Technological Advancement as well as Sustainable Development In Nigeria’s Educational System. This is what StarkHouse is all about!

VARIABLES OF CULTURE: Food and Language (I)

Food

Food is definitely the most rudimentary element of survival for all living things. No one exists without the intake of any kind of food with little or no regards to whether the diet is balanced or not. Like other variables of Culture, food is a psychological response that comes from a physiological need and the act of preparing it in a way that would facilitate its processing and readiness for consumption is Technology.

DEEP Learning

Many times, what people celebrate is the product; few find the reasons behind or origin of the creation of the product. And it is not rocket science that the essence of anything lies in its origin . . . and this is what many developed countries are doing to be able to stand out above other developing or under-developed countries. They do not only celebrate the product, they investigate the product and find out the process and the people involved in making the product what it is.
