E-Learning and English Language Development in Nigeria: Trends, Issues, Challenges and Prospects
In recent times, researchers have observed that the E-learning education system is becoming more needed in society due to the recent world pandemic caused by COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The pandemic has made traditional classroom learning impossible in many countries. Schools and academic institutions are in total lockdown for many months. Therefore, there is an urgent need for the full implementation of the e-learning system of education in every part of the world, including Nigeria. Based on this little background, the focus of this study was to examine the trends, issues, challenges, and prospects of using e-learning facilities and platforms to study the English language in Nigeria. Previous evidence showed that the e-learning programme provides a solution to most of the learning challenges experienced by students and educators. To this end, the author critically examined the concept of e-learning with reference English language. The author further discussed the trends in e-learning and the English language, in addition to the discussion on the major issues in e-learning. Moreover, the author critically examined
the challenges, prospects, and roles of e-learning in the English language. Finally, the author made recommendations that Government should evolve a policy that will make e-learning education available for students of all levels; that acquisition of computer skills should be made compulsory for all students for easy implementation of the e-learning education system.
