OAU To Extend Distance Learning Centres To 6 Cities

The Director of the Centre for Distance Learning of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Professor H. B. Olaniyi has revealed the plans of the centre to look beyond its provincial locations and extend its e-learning resource Centres to more cities.

While speaking with members of the Task Force set up by the university’s Acting Vice-Chancellor to look into the sharing formula of the Internally Generated Revenue outfits of the university, Olaniyi reportedly said he made a journey to University of Ibadan CDL and discovered that it is running six courses, and had about 14,000 Students.

“The Centre is embarking on plans that will within a short time attract Students to the Centre. The Chairman advised the Centre to look beyond the provincial locations but to extend the e-learning resource Centres to Ibadan, Lagos, Port-Harcourt, Warri, Abuja, Jos among others,” part of the taskforce report read.

The Director however told the Task force that the Centre already had such visions but the handicap had been fund. He counselled that the University should plant its good seeds now and wait to harvest later.

The OAU Centre for Distance Learning runs foundational programmes including Predegree and JUPEB. The centre also offers certificate, diploma, undergraduate degree and postgraduate degree programmes.
