Prospects of Online Teaching and Learning in Nigeria (Published)

Coronavirus (Covid-19) has great impacts on the education industry so much that it has introduced revolutionary trends into the education industry that have potentials to usher in fundamental and desirable changes. The desirable impressions of coronavirus in the education landscape are so visible that many stakeholders pray that it will be unthinkable for any reasonable state to return to the practices in the education industry prior to the coronavirus pandemic. One desirable change brought about by the coronavirus pandemic is online teaching and learning. Using the philosophical methodology, this paper discusses the prospects of online teaching and learning. The paper establishes that online teaching and learning is advantageous to teacher, learners and administration of educational institutions. It helps to improve the professional development of the teacher and through this way grows the teaching profession, enables teachers and learners to revisit what had been taught and learnt, makes teaching and learning more flexible and more convenient for both the teacher and the learners, saves cost for management, enhances effective documentation by management. The paper among other things recommends that the sense of collaboration the education industry witnessed during this period should be sustained and teacher education should be repositioned to integrate those revolutionary changes popped up during this period into the curriculum of teacher education institutions.
