NUC Urges Stakeholders to Take Advantage of E-Learning

The Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) has urged relevant stakeholders in the education sector to take advantage of the potentials, which electronic media present as means of creating accessible and cost effective materials for distance learning in the country.

The Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Julius Okojie, stated this at the launch of General Studies (GST) e- Modules for Distance Learners, in Abuja, recently. Okojie, who noted that the e-modules would solve the issue of accessibility and flexibility of learning materials in the country, added that it would further bridge the gap and disparity between students of open universities and their counterparts in the conventional universities.

He said, “The Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode which has been shown to be a very effective and efficient means of enhancing access to education without compromising quality, is predicted on the principles of flexibility and learner-centeredness where high quality teaching and learning interactions take place without the constraints of time and space.”
