In a conventional education
system, learners need to attend daily lectures and
be present in the campus. Therefore, for a working
adult learner, this system will be difficult for
them to study and work at the same time. However, in
ODL, learners can work and further their education
at the same time. Learners are also not required to
travel for classes everyday.
Tutorial Support Services
Under the ODL mode of study, learners need not attend daily lectures.
However, in a semester, learners are required to meet with their appointed
qualified tutors over several weekends. These tutors facilitate the learning
process and assist learners to have a better understanding of their courses.
Learners will be provided with a set of comprehensive course materials to
support learning and are expected to engage in self-learning.
Learning Management System (LMS)
Learners will also be supported by WawasanLearn, a Learning
Management System designed as a platform to allow students, tutors and
administrators to input information for learning, supporting and keeping
track of the learning process. The system is commonly used for uploading
course content, course updates, important announcements, etc.
