What does your typical day look like?
I have often referred to my day as a roller coaster: I get the children ready for school in the morning, work 8-5, prepare dinner and put the children to bed by 9pm. After that I put in extra hours for programming work and study till the early hours of the next day.
Why did you choose to study online for this degree with the University of Liverpool?
My schedule – children and work – would not have allowed me to do otherwise. I needed a programme that could fit into my schedule.
How did you fit online study into your life?
My active study time was between 9pm and 4am after the children were asleep and the house was quiet. There were times that I studied in the car, in a plane or while waiting for a meeting.

I enjoyed the fact that the classroom came to me – I did not need to commute to learn and interact with other students.

The effect of instructional design on M-learning perception in Nigeria.
What did it mean to you to finally graduate in Liverpool?
It meant a lot to me – I feel proud of this achievement.

Yes it has. I have put a lot of what I have learnt into practice at my workplace and also, for me personally, my research skills have greatly improved.
What three words sum up your experience with the University of Liverpool?
