Opon Imo project an initiative of the Osun State Governor to promote the quality of the educational sector among pupils in the Secondary Schools in school. There was also a celebration for the success of the project.
According to Governor Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, “It is a first-of-its-kind standalone learning tablet in the world for self-paced study. It provides three major content categories vis-à-vis, e-library, virtual classroom, and an integrated test zone. The virtual classroom category contains 63 e-books covering 17 academic subjects for examinations conducted by WAEC, NECO and JAMB as well as non-academic life-enriching subjects such as ‘history of The Yoruba’, ‘sexuality education’, ‘civic education’, ‘ifa on ethics and morals’, ‘enterprise education’, ‘hints and tips on passing SSCE’ and ‘How to live a Healthy and Happy life’. This section also contains an average of 16 chapters per subject and 823 chapters in all, with about 900 minutes or 15 hours of audio voiceovers”.
He also said that,“It reinforced our mindset that every pioneering project of this nature must necessarily involve a never-failing spirit to surmount difficulties and challenges. So, we fortified our spirit with the counsel of Samuel Beckett, which urges us to, ‘Try again. Fail again. [And] Fail better.’”
