BIMS To Transform Way Students, Lecturers, Others Engage With Educational Resources – Echono

The Executive Secretary of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), Arc Sonny Echono, has assured that BIMS (Beneficiary Identity Management Service) will transform the way students, lecturers, and non-teaching staff engage with educational resources through a comprehensive platform.

He noted that BIMS seeks to improve the educational experience for all users by offering convenient access and numerous benefits.

According to him, BIMS significantly enhances student life by simplifying access to educational platforms. He added that through a streamlined single sign-on process, BIMS enables students to effortlessly navigate learning management systems, digital libraries, and academic tools without the hassle of multiple login credentials.

The TETFund boss stated this in a statement, noting that this time-saving and convenient approach empowers students to focus more on their studies.

“BIMS serves as a gateway to a wealth of knowledge, connecting students seamlessly to various educational platforms, such as Eagle Scan (a plagiarism checker), Blackboard (lecture repository and collaboration tool), ICDL (digital literacy program), and EBSCO (digital library). These platforms offer diverse opportunities for improving learning experiences and cultivating essential skills.

“In recognizing the crucial role of lecturers in efficiently managing educational materials, BIMS underscores the need for streamlined access. By consolidating platforms, BIMS enhances efficiency, allowing lecturers to seamlessly navigate various services without the burden of separate registrations or authentication processes.

“This simplified approach empowers lecturers to dedicate more time to teaching, research, and fostering meaningful connections with students,” he said.

He also stated that non-teaching staff are not ignored in this solution, “as they are crucial for the effective operation of educational institutions. BIMS addresses their needs by streamlining administrative procedures and enhancing productivity overall.

“Non-teaching staff can easily access necessary resources and platforms without the hassle of redundant registrations and authentication.

“This increased efficiency enables them to concentrate on their main duties, including student record management, event coordination, and administrative assistance.”

Echono explained that the advantages of BIMS apply to all stakeholders involved, as it provides simplified access to educational resources, enhances collaboration and communication, promotes academic integrity, develops digital skills, and saves costs.

“BIMS transforms the educational field by offering an efficient and inclusive learning experience for students, lecturers, and non-teaching staff. It equips users with comprehensive learning materials, fosters the growth of digital skills, and ensures fair access to education.

“With BIMS, the educational journey becomes more streamlined, productive, and accessible for everyone involved. All thanks to TETFund, the future of education in Nigeria is looking brighter than ever,” he added.
