ODL is especially useful for potential students who are unable to access learning opportunities where they are provided

The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), with 72 study/resource centres nationwide, is currently the only Uni-mode university mandated for Open and Distance Learning in the delivery of university education.

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has approved seventeen (17)  universities which may be regarded as dual-mode universities with limited capacity to deliver degree programmes by open and

distance learning (ODL) in addition to the conventional face-to-face mode.
