Open and Distance Learning for Skill Development in Nigeria
The access to knowledge and skills to all people regardless of gender, age, race or location is enormously important. Education and training must be all-inclusive and reflect the vastly diversified present economy and various fields of human-power needs. The universalization of education and its worldwide acceptance as a continuous or lifelong undertaking, coupled with concerns about educational access and equity, as well as the prevailing level of poverty necessitates the use of various education delivery approaches to enable all citizens to benefit from this public good. A variety of skills are taught in formal or traditional classroom settings and many others are taught in the societies or village communities and settings. The primary aim of this paper is to look into the roles of Open Distance Learning (ODL) in the dissemination of skills to the population and also to discuss how ODL has expanded the educational opportunities at various levels. // Paper ID: 451
