Lagos Unveils E-Learning Portal For Civil Servants

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu Wednesday launched the Learning Management System (LMS), an e-learning and training platform.

The LSM is a technology-driven platform developed with Envivo Communications – a tech firm – to enhance capacity development in the public workforce through continuous training. Through it, the state can seamlessly administer, document, track report and deliver educational courses and training programmes for civil servants.

The innovation also phases out low training quota in the civil service. Before now, it takes four years to train about 3,000 workers but with LSM, about 50,000 workers can be trained in one year.

Already, 42,446 of the state’s over 150,000 civil servants have been on-boarded on the e-learning portal.

Sanwo-Olu, who said the innovation would raise the bar of service delivery in the civil servife, stressed that the platform would expose the personnel to a wide spectrum of opportunities for enhanced competence and efficiency.

He said: “Our administration places a premium on the competence of the public service to deliver government policies, strategies and programmes for the benefit of the people. It is, therefore, necessary that we equip our public service personnel with the requisite skills and learning tools needed to thrive in a 21st century economy and a knowledge-based environment.

“The launch of the Learning Management System, today, is a crystallisation of the reform process which our administration initiated to improve service delivery in public administration and governance. It is laudable that the public service personnel have embraced the innovation, which will further enhance their capacity to deliver quality and timely service to the people.

“It is encouraging to know that 42,446 public servants from the various Ministries, Departments, Agencies and Parastatals have been on-boarded on the platform, which has a variety of learning contents with over 4,000 free, self-enrolment courses and 8,000 courses from the LinkedIn Learning Library.”
