Open And Distance Learning (ODL)

With the advent of technology, higher education institutions no longer confined to the traditional brick and mortar learning and teaching methods.

Open and Distance Learning (ODL) refers to the provision of flexible educational opportunities in terms of access and multiple modes of knowledge acquisition.

  • Flexible means the availability of choices for educational endeavors anywhere, anytime and anyhow.

  • Access means opportunity made available to all, freeing them from constraints of time and place.

  • Multiple modes mean the use of various delivery systems and learning resources.

What are the benefits of ODL?

In general, ODL is the emerging trend to access quality education, lifelong learning opportunities, flexible modes of learning, and conducive learning environment for young school leavers, university communities and the working population. Students participate in online lectures, tutorials and self-directed online learning. While online tests and assignments allow students to instantly review the marks and feedback to help them improve in their next sittings.

ODL presents a potpourri of benefits where it transforms education to be more flexible and accessible to meet the needs of the 21st century learners.
