ICT DIRECTORATE, AE-FUNAI CONDUCTS ORIENTATION FOR STUDENTS ON CBT APPLICATION
The Information Communication Technology (ICT) Directorate, Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi State, on Wednesday January 8, 2020, organised special computer literacy programme for both freshmen and returning students at the University Main Auditorium, Administrative Zone. Theme for the programme was ‘’Orientation on the Use of Computer Base Test (CBT) Application for Both Registration and Examination Exercises’’.
In his introduction, the lead lecturer, Mr. Mathew Eze, who is a Senior Technologist at the Directorate, stated that, the training was organised to prepare students adequately ahead of forthcoming mid-term registration and examination exercises that will be coming up in the year. He pointed out that, participation in the training was very essential for students, stressing that any student who was absent in the training will only have him or herself to blame. He promised to clarify Students on any areas of the lecture they did not understand.
Participants at the training were taken through what was termed “the way out” which involved the easy steps for registration and examination. Accordingly, steps for registration include visit to CBT Centre for e-pin, log onto website, creation of account, completion of registration and sign out, while that of examination are, strict adherence to instructions, sign in appropriately, starting and ending. Students were also given information on steps to take in the case of unseen result or score after examination.
The students had time during the interactive session to ask relevant questions for necessary clarifications. They as well expressed happiness for the training, while appreciating the ICT Directorate, organisers of the training, for their commitment to making AE-FUNAI students sufficiently computer literate.
