Lagos Govt Unveils E-learning Platform For Public Service Trainings
TECH DIGEST – Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has launched the Learning Management System (LMS), an e-learning and training platform for public servants in the state.
Developed by the tech firm Envivo Communications, the LSM is a technology-driven platform to enhance capacity development in the public workforce through continuous training.
Through it, the state will administer, document, track report, and deliver educational courses and training programmes for civil servants.
The innovation also phases out low training quota in the civil service. Before now, it takes four years to train about 3,000 workers but with LSM, about 50,000 workers can be trained in one year.
Sanwo-Olu said the innovation would raise the bar of service delivery in the civil service, adding that the platform would expose the personnel to a wide spectrum of opportunities for enhanced competence and efficiency.
He said: “Our administration places a premium on the competence of the public service to deliver government policies, strategies, and programmes for the benefit of the people. It is, therefore, necessary that we equip our public service personnel with the requisite skills and learning tools needed to thrive in a 21st century economy and a knowledge-based environment.
“The launch of the Learning Management System, today, is a crystallisation of the reform process which our administration initiated to improve service delivery in public administration and governance.
“It is laudable that the public service personnel have embraced the innovation, which will further enhance their capacity to deliver quality and timely service to the people’’, Sanwo-Olu added.
Already, 42,446 of the state’s over 150,000 civil servants have been on-boarded on the e-learning portal. The portal has a variety of 4,000 free learning contents, self-enrolment courses, and 8,000 courses from the LinkedIn Learning Library.
