Although students are generally computer savvy, there are still some students for whom computer literacy is a major issue. As an ODL learner, you will need to operate basic programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint and handle your files. At WOU, besides knowing how to navigate the website and learning management system, you will also need to submit your assignments online for marking and look for resources using the digital library. Basic technological proficiency is a must as it enables students to manage their assignments and course ware in an organised manner without any struggle. Students will also need access to computers and high bandwidth. Therefore the only solution to this problem is knowing exactly what kind of technological support they will require and equip themselves with it as this will help them complete their courses successfully.
