Obafemi Awolowo University Centre for Distance Learning (OAU CDL) has launched its very own Customised Learning Management System called the e-Zone. The centre's e-learning programme was designed to admit OAU's four undergraduate ODL programmes, namely; the Bachelor of Science programmes in Nursing, Accounting, Economics, Digital and Agricultural Extension and Community Engineering.
The launch was announced by the spokesperson for the centre, Adeyemi Adedeji on Friday. He also revealed that teaching and learning did not stop for OAU Predegree and JUPEB students at the centre, despite the closure of universities.
“The OAUCDL e-zone images classroom activities online. It facilitates the provision of instructional materials to students in the form of online text, PDF, MS Word, PowerPoint, audio presentations and video recording of lectures. The system also allows instructors to link students to a vast array of free educational resources available on the internet.”
