Fuoye To Run Dual-mode Education. by Aderinola (m): 4:11am on August 3

Aspirant, Nigeria.

The Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) will soon become a dual mode institution as it has entered into a partnership with the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) in Vancouver, Canada to develop its capacity to deliver Open Distance Learning (ODL) education, the Vice-Chancellor(VC), Prof Kayode Soremekun has said.

Speaking with reporters in Oye- Ekiti, Soremekun said COL, an intergovernmental organisation established by the Commonwealth Heads of Government in 1988 to encourage the development and sharing of open learning and distance education knowledge and resources, is being funded mainly to enchance the quality of educational programmes of the Commonwealth nations.

Soremekun added that COL hosts a biennial Pan-commonwealth Forum on Open learning (PCF), and Excellence in Distance Awards programme.

According to the VC, running the ODL mode would expand the scope of its scholarship around the globe through access to university education and exchange programme among commonwealth universities.

He said Nigeria, as a prominent member of the Commonwealth, has representatives on COL’s Board of Governors, and this enables the country’s fast growing academic institutions to have linkages with the organisation on ODL programmes.

Soremekun said: “I have visited COL and held series of meetings with the organisation and the matters discussed were focused on developing FUOYE with regards to quality assurance, employability and the strategy to transit FUOYE into a dual mode University.

“Dual mode means that we are complementing our existing orthodox programmes with the Distance Learning Programme.”
