OAU Welcomes First Set Of e-Students

The Obafemi Awolowo University’s Center for Distance Learning (OAUCDL) today welcomed its pioneer set for the Online Distance Learning Programme. This was at the Matriculation Ceremony which held at the Oduduwa Hall of the OAU Main Campus.

The OAUCDL Online Distance Learning programme is accredited by the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) and allows students to receive their lectures online using a customized study tablet (Vigitab).


The Vice Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Professor Bamitale Omole, whilst addressing the students, said: “you have the singular honor of being the first set of students in our eLearning programme, the first of its type in Nigeria. I congratulate you on being pioneers of the eLearning revolution in the country. I want to assure you that your distant learning mode of admission does not in any way imply inferiority in status, compared to our conventional students, either in terms of lecture delivery or the certificates you receive at the end of your programmes. Our university guards jealously the integrity of its degrees and diplomas whether obtained in the conventional or distance learning mode. Hence your various curricula have gone through the usual high standards of excellence of the University Senate for which Obafemi Awolowo University is well known.”

The Center for Distance Learning Director, Professor Bode Asubiojo, speaking also at the ceremony said: “This development is the first of its kind in Nigeria and we are pleased with it. We have replicated the classroom experience on a tablet device for students. For the first time, students can receive lectures, submit assignments, participate in forums, take quizzes, and even rewind their lecturers, all from the comfort of their homes, offices or wherever they may be in Nigeria or abroad.”

The eLearning solution is powered by a Learning Management System (VigiLearn) that allows students to receive lectures, submit assignments, relate with peers, participate in group discussions and get graded without being physically within the four walls of a lecture room. The Vigitab is specifically built for Nigeria and allow for users to continue to study and receive lectures with limited internet connection.

“Our primary charge at the Center for Distance Learning of Obafemi Awolowo University is to provide quality education to the teeming number of Nigerian youths who possess the prerequisite qualifications for entry to Nigerian Universities but are denied admission owing to inadequate facilities on campus and the working class who are desirous of pursuing undergraduate and post graduate programmes whilst still retaining their jobs; the Online Distance Learning programme allows us to deliver on this objective.” Professor Asubiojo highlighted.

Courses on offer for the Online Distance Learning Programme are B.Sc. Accounting and Bachelor of Nursing Science. The Center plans to include more courses in the future.
