Administrator Lauds Glo Over Education Initiative


Experienced school administrator, students and other categories of education stakeholders have lauded the educational application launched by Globacom, named Glo Mobile Tutor.

The application launched about a month ago by the national telecom operator is an innovation with full Junior and Secondary school curricula specially designed to provide instant knowledge and prepare students for examinations.

In random interviews with subjects in Lagos recently, Mrs Titilayo Ajayi, Principal, May Day College in Surulere, Lagos said, “Glo Mobile Tutor is the best telecoms innovation I’ve seen. Our teachers even use the app to prepare their lesson notes. With the Mobile Tutor, students can even prepare for exams without enrolling at school. Now indigent students can study on their own and write exams even when they don’t have money to pay school fees.” She advised parents to ensure their children and wards subscribe to the service.

A maths teacher at Greenwich Comprehensive College, Mr. Godson, opined that Glo Mobile Tutor has made his job a lot more easier. He said that pupils now learn on their own and only come to class to revise what they have learnt.

A cross-section of students spoken to by our reporters in Lagos recently testified to the efficacy of the application. Some of the students were excited to have Glo Mobile Tutor on their mobile phones.
