About UI Distance Learning Centre.

The programmes are run under the University's Open and Distance Learning (ODL) Platform.
The University of Ibadan Distance Learning Centre (UIDLC) is an arm of the University responsible for providing Open and Distance Learning University Education. This mode of education is technology-mediated and provides for minimum physical interaction between the learners and the facilitators. DLC learners are spread across different locations within and outside the country because of the convenience of access which is made available by this mode.

It is noteworthy to further inform prospective candidates that the academic activities of UIDLC are facilitated by the same lecturers as the regular mode of study. The issuance of the same certificates as obtainable in the conventional university system is also assured. This is technically referred to as PARITY OF ESTEEM- both categories have equal rights and privileges.

At the moment, the Centre has fifteen (15) academic programmes which are fully accredited by the National University Commission (NUC).

What is UI Open Distance eLearning Mode?

ODeL is the National Universities Commission’s (NUC) approved ICT-enabled curriculum delivery mode, wherein curriculum delivery takes place in a blended 60% online, and 40%-to-face.

The online delivery is anchored on a Specialised Learning Management System, Mobile Class with Course Webinars for learners to study and interact with their E-tutors, course lecturers/facilitators and other students in the world in real-time.

The University of Ibadan has further provided Toll-Free Internet Data on its Learning Portal. Notably, the University has the two modes of educational deliveries: the conventional onsite mode and the Open, Distance and eLearning (ODeL) mode. And both modes are viable alternative for pursing a University of Ibadan degree, hence the entrenchment of the “Parity of Esteem” policy in the University.

The policy stipulates that students on the two modes of study have equal rights and privileges in the University. And are in fact exposed to the same university curriculum and exams by the same course lecturers/facilitators, thereby graduating with the same University of Ibadan degree.
