Distance education is any teaching and learning process in which all or most of the teaching is conducted by someone separated by space and/or time from the learner, with the effect that all or most of the communication between teachers and learners is through media, either electronic or printed technologies. The rationale for distance education has been to open opportunity for learners to study regardless of geographic, socio-economic or other constraints. The openness of distance education is seen in relatively flexible organizational structures, delivery and communication patterns, and use of various technologies in support of learning. ODEL allows learners and facilitators to respond and adapt better to the emerging technology and changing landscape of education in the 21st century. ODEL is therefore committed to meeting the changing needs of our society by developing learning opportunities that increase learners’ access, support, success, and provides quality instruction.
