Welcome to Open, Distance and E-learning Centre, UNIPORT
Hello world! Welcome to the Open, Distance and e-Learning (ODeL) Centre, of the University of Port Harcourt. The ODeL Centre is one of the outcomes of the collaboration between the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) and the African Virtual University (AVU) in Nairobi, Kenya. As you are probably aware, Nigeria’s National Policy on Education recognizes the place of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in achieving lifelong education and affirms that lifelong education shall be the basis of the nation’s education policy. Open learning refers to the absence of constraint in the learning process, a sort of unrestricted learning that can be carried out by anybody at anytime and anywhere (Dike, 2014).
The programmes are delivered by distance delivery with multimedia learning materials (videos, activities, games, etc.) and interactions in specific skill areas and 1 semester of practicals involving business proposal development, Team-project, and actual interventions. Students are provided Android Tablets pre-loaded with learning materials and free Internet access for learning purposes. Get Started
