I welcome you to the Centre for Distance Learning of Joseph Ayo Babalola University (CDL, JABU).
You probably have been thinking about how to add value to your life through an academic programme from an accredited institution. In achieving this dream, you probably have been constrained by work, social commitment, family chores and other issues about life that need your personal attention. All your concerns regarding that dream have become history now !
CDL, JABU is approved by the National Universities Commission (NUC) as a quasi-autonomous unit of the university mandated by both the Governing Council and the Senate of the University to offer Open Distance and e-learning programmes for undergraduate courses. Specifically, we currently offer the BSc degree course in Accounting programme.
The Open Distance Learning approach is flexible and allows you the freedom to control your own learning, determine when, where and how you learn. This, however, requires guidance which is available from our deployed and provided robust learner support system for our diverse learners. This support system includes Facilitators, E-tutors, Information, Advice and Guidance officers and Counsellors.
Our well-crafted and easy-to-understand course materials for the programme were authored by same lecturers who teach the courses in the face-to-face mode. The materials are written in conversational language with learner-friendly features. The content of these course materials is accessible in three different formats hard copy/pdf, online via the Learning Management System and multi-media device.
I trust that with these facilities at our disposal to chart a new path for leveraging technology enabled open distance learning you can embrace a robust and transformational education in achieving your dream.
I wholeheartedly welcome you to key into this mission!
Professor A. A. Eludire
Director, Centre for Distance Learning, JABU
