commence IT Academy programme with Microsoft
Global technology giant Microsoft has indicated
interest to partner with IAUE to improve and
strengthen the educational programmes of the
Microsoft Consumer Channels Group Director Mr.
Mark Ihimoyan gave this indication when he paid a
courtesy visit to the Vice-Chancellor of Ignatius
Ajuru University of Education Professor Joseph
Kinanee at his office on Wednesday 23rd March
Mr Ihimoyan who pointed out that Microsoft has
moved from archaic technology to cutting edge
system through its incessant innovations
remarked that the 21st century modern day
students needs to be creative and relevant as a
professional. The educational and learning
experiences he continued would be transformed
with innovations and made interesting to help
empower, develop skills and create a sustained
economic opportunities for the students.
The Microsoft Director who noted that IAUE was
blessed to have a visionary leader like Professor
Joseph Kinanee, stressed that they were ready to
start the IT Academy programme with Microsoft
certification and make IAUE a bench mark for a
global standard that can be referenced.
Responding the Vice-Chancellor Professor Joseph
Kinanee noted that the university had gotten
computers and software from Microsoft before
now. He emphasized that the dream of State
Government was to ensure that IAUE trained
students in B.Sc. Ed and B. Sc Computer Science.
The Vice-Chancellor hinted that although the
university was one of education it would diversify
and welcomed the proposal for Microsoft personnel
to train IAUE Staff in modern technology. He also
said that IAUE would gladly partner with Microsoft
in its effort to support the Information and
Communications Technology (ICT) as well as
maintain it adding that maintenance culture was
key if much was to be achieved.
Professor Kinanee informed the Director that IAUE
was preparing for accreditation by the National
Universities Commission (NUC) and needed e-
library in each department. He solicited for support
to ensure that the programmes of the university
attained full accreditation.
Also speaking the university librarian Dr. Boma
Obi observed that the university e-library was
functional and not a check list. She called for
effective training at the barest minimum cost as
staff would be interested in their training which
she noted must not necessarily be self based. Dr.
Obi opined that some staff were immigrants to the
ICT world and needed personal training.
Microsoft is the world’s leading producer of
computer software and one of the most formidable
and influential providers of information technology.
It was founded April 4, 1975 by Bill Gates and Paul
Allen in Albuquergue New Mexico. Some of its
best selling products include the Microsoft
windows operating system, Microsoft office suite of
productivity software and many other software
services, devices and solutions.
