LASU e-Learning Portal Guidelines for GNS Courses

Lagos State University (LASU) Launches Online (Virtual) e-Learning Portal / Platform for the Online Teaching and Learning of all GNS Courses to Complement Physical Classes. See Guidelines and Procedures to Access LASU GNS Courses Lecture Materials Online.

In a bid to overcome the challenge of securing appropriate teaching-learning space to cater for its large number of students during the GNS teaching belt as well as adhere to COVID-19 protocols during the pedagogical process, the Centre for General Nigerian Studies (CGNS) has partnered with the Directorate of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) to develop an eLearning platform for the teaching and learning of all GNS courses in the University, to complement the physical classes.


The eLearning platform was launched on Wednesday, 24th March 2021.

The new hybrid teaching-learning format will begin with an initial 2weeks of physical Course Introduction and Sensitization by lecturers, followed by 8 weeks of Online Lectures before students come back for another 2weeks for physical Course Revision, in batches.
