The Vice-Chancellor of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) Prof. Abdalla Adamu yesterday disclosed that about 515,000 students were enrolled to pursue different courses in the institution.

He disclosed this during the first vice-chancellor’s retreat for principal officers, deans and directors of NOUN held Enugu on Monday, saying that institution recently shared about 1,700-course materials to Zimbabwe on request just as it continues to receive an offer for consultations.

According to Adamu, only 150,000 students are active across the 78 study centres of the institution, saying the university remains a one-stop solution to open and distance learning both in Nigeria and the African region.

The Vice-Chancellor who rated NOUN as the largest Open and Distant Learning (ODL) mode on the Continent emphasised that the institution had spent the last 15 years developing its programmes to international standards.

Adamu said, “About five countries in Africa including Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Mozambique, Malawi had sent their people to understudy NOUN. Our centre is now a reference point and the most successful. We are dealing with African realities and problems and other countries are sending their people to know how we run the programme.

According to the Vice Chancellor, the retreat aimed at self and institutional improvement adding, ”We are going to look into our areas of strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats as custodians of open and distance learning in Nigeria. We want a take from the positives of our achievements and document them for posterity in form of an annual report,” he said.

In spite of our strategic importance, we must not forget the number one stakeholders in the NOUN project; students.

In his remarks, the Director, Enugu Study Center, Prof. Alexander Onyia, said that the university had made progress in delivering qualitative education and attributed the successes recorded to the commitment demonstrated by the leadership, stakeholders and cooperation of the students.
