In a decisive effort to upgrade communication and enhance security, a group of students of the University of Lagos has developed an app known as `Lagmobile’ and a campus life website.
Commenting on the app during its launch on Friday, August 9, Vice Chancellor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe said that the students are bloggers and that the institution is encouraging them in this regard as well as supporting them as much as possible, The Guardian reports.
Ogundipe said: “We threw up this challenge open to all of the students cutting across all the departments and faculties when we thought about improving communication as well the level of security on our campus.
“This app was designed in such a way that if, for instance, there is a case of kidnap, cultism, all the person affected needs to do is to click a button on his or her telephone.
“Once this is done, probably accompanied by a short message, wherever such the person is, the signal will be sent to the right quarters for urgent intervention."
The VC also revealed that the app is capable of helping students with information on academic problems by directing them to the appropriate quarters.
Even more, Ogundipe said that the group, in two weeks' time, will launch another app that would serve as a map within the university.
He said: “The essence is to direct or inform visitors and students how to reach whoever they want to see at various locations within the university without necessarily asking questions around.”
