Minister of State for Education Mr Emeka Neajiuba made this known during the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19 daily press briefing in Abuja.
He said the federal government granted free subscription to students during the lockdown as a result of the COVID-19 , pandemic, adding that some selected sites could now be accessed by the student for free lectures.
According to him, Airtel users can browse the site for free while MTN and Glo are still adjusting their technical system for their subscribers to access the free site, adding that both Radio and Television stations could also be accessed for the lecture.
He said the online classes were conducted like the offline, adding that the classes could be taken in real time if the students were online and they could also get the lectures after the classes were over and such student was not online at such time.
