Moi University Distance Learning – Read full Details Below:
Approaches to the provision and delivery of education are dynamic and Moi University is at the forefront in adapting its system appropriately. It is partly in recognition of this that the Institute of Open and Distance Learning (IODL) was established in November 2007 to spearhead the implementation of ODL in the university. The Institute has 11 (Eleven) members of staff and 5 (five) departments through which it provides its services. It has an ODL Management Board which provides guidance to the Institute and is chaired by the DVC (Academics, Research & Extension). An Evaluation Sub-Committee constituted under the Board ensures quality of the instructional materials developed and produced. It also has an Academic Board with representation from each School within Moi University. Members of this Board serve as intermediaries between IODL and their respective schools, and also enhance the readiness of each school for sensitization, training and preparation of ODL programmes. To date, an e-learning platform- Moi University System of Managing Instruction (MUSOMI) has been installed and is being used for blended learning our academic staff members who have already uploaded courses.
