Akoka, Nigeria (PressExposure) August 26, 2013 -- The founder of Think First Technologies Limited, a Nigerian software development company that recently won the United Nations Award (World Summit Youth Award), Mr. Akinyele Olubodun has developed another unique and dynamic application for schools in Nigeria and the whole of Africa.
According to Olubodun, 'Remarks is an online result management solution for all Secondary & Primary Schools in Nigeria and the whole of Africa. Its approach is totally different from other existing online result management solution because it allows a school to practically use the application without any body's assistance. It is easy for a school to set up, just as you can easily open your school's email address and start sending mail from the very first day of registration. This is why we emphasize that you can always DO IT YOURSELF! All you need to do to get started is just a click on http://www.remarks-ng.com'
Also in his words, 'majority of the schools in Africa and surprisingly in Europe, America, Asia, Australia, etc. are still using the manual approach towards marking, recording, calculating, sorting, storing, displaying and presenting students' academic results'. Remarks is designed to eliminate all the stress that most teachers encounter while using the manual approach. Mr. Olubodun said 'teachers are meant to teach, so they should not be asked to carry the burden of processing students' result.' He claims that all the rigorous processes in the manual approach will be eliminated at just a click.
With the help of Remarks, parents/guardians can check their wards' academic performance any time, anywhere and on any smart phone or other smart devices with internet access. There is also an option to view the result via SMS alert. For comprehensive analysis of students' academic performance, you can always bank on Remarks. It provides graphical and other statistical representation of each ward's performance in class, subject, etc. in comparison with other students in the school. So, parents can monitor the progress of their children any time.
Speaking on the importance of the solution to national development, the young Akinyele said he is happy to make Nigeria proud. He said 'the fact is that most people in the Western world did not believe Nigerians are innovative. But now, Nigerians are proving them wrong in the entertainment industry and now in ICT. We are getting there; it is just a matter of time'
