LAUTECH Open and Distance Learning FAQs

1. What is ODL (Open and Distance Learning)?
ODL is a system of education in which education is imparted to Learners who may not be physically present on campus. Its philosophy is to remove barriers to education and allow learners to study according to their time, pace and place. ODL also uses technology to mediate learning.

2. What is the difference between LODLC and studying in conventional LAUTECH?
In a conventional education system, learners need to attend daily lectures and be present in the campus. Therefore, for a working adult learner, this system will be difficult for them to study and work at the same time. However, for LODLC programmes, learners can work and further their education at the same time. Learners are also not required to travel for classes every day.

3. How does LODLC support the learning process of a student?
a) Course Materials:
Learners will be provided with a set of comprehensive course materials to support learning and are expected to engage in self-learning. These materials will be in texts (both electronic and printed) and multimedia formats (i.e. interactive DVDs)
b) Learning Management System (LMS):
Learners will also be supported by a Learning Management System designed as a platform to allow students, tutors and administrators to input information for learning, supporting and keeping track of the learning process. The system is commonly used for uploading/downloading course content, course updates, important announcements, etc.

c) Tutorial Support Services:
Under the ODL mode of study, learners need not attend daily lectures. However, in a semester, learners are required to meet with their appointed qualified Tutors and Learner Support Staffs over several days as fixed online/LMS. These tutors facilitate the learning process and assist learners to have a better understanding of their courses.

d) Blended Mode of Course delivery:
Course delivery shall be by a blended mode, which means that technology delivery will be supplemented by a short period of residency not exceeding four weeks. Students will also be required to be physically on campus during examinations and for four weeks for revision and interactions prior to examinations. During this period, the centre will assist to liaise with private hostel manager for accommodation for willing students at their own cost.

4. What programmes does LODLC offer?
Computer Science is the only programme we are presently operating. Very soon, accounting, marketing and nursing programme will commence.

5. What is the Duration of the Programme?
Minimum duration for the LODLC Degree programmes is for four (4) years. Maximum duration of a 4years study is 8years, and so on. No candidate may spend more than twice the normal allowable minimum duration for any program.

6. How will I receive lectures?
Our students receive lectures online

7. Are Attendances and assessments compulsory?

YES! You are expected to participate regularly in topic-specific online discussions. This will ensure an effective learning community is maintained which will significantly increase the quality of and commitment to your studies. Therefore attendance will be examined to ensure contributions are being made in a regular fashion. You will also be assessed on your contributions to the discussions.

8. Will my degree certificate say online learning?
There is no mention of online study on the degree certificate. ODL students shall not be discriminated against in any way. No distinction shall be placed on their certificates or transcript to differentiate them from other modes. OUR PARITY OF ESTEEM ARE EXEMPLARY.

9. What happens if my circumstances change during my studies?
If your personal situation changes during your studies, we will work with you through our Information Advice and Guidance (IA&G) and Guidance and Counseling officers.

10. When I finished my programme, will I be mobilized for NYSC?
