dc.description.abstract A Paper Presented at the Sixth Pan Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning (PCF6) on the Theme; Access and Success in Learning: Global Development Perspectives Held from 24- 28 November 2010 at Le-Meridian, Cochin Resort & Convention Centre (Kochi, Kerala), India // This paper attempts to examine the genesis and impact of the introduction of the Open and Distance Learning (ODL) programme in the implementation of the Nomadic Education Programme (NEP) in Nigeria. The salient issues discussed include needs assessment, rationale, components, strategies, curriculum and mode of delivery, facilitators, teachers, instructional materials, achievements, challenges and lessons learnt. Similarly, major access factors and success indicators witnessed as a result of the systematic implementation of the programme were also identified and highlighted. The specific challenges and constraints of the programme were also analysed and various measures taken to overcome them pinpointed. The paper concluded that the Commission’s Open and Distance Learning (ODL) programme for more than a decade has been able to record successes in various facets. The modest achievements include increase in awareness, access and success in the provision of basic education, literacy, numeracy and life skills by the target group. It has also facilitated the promotion of social justice in terms of gender, socio-economic, cultural diversities and skills development. These have played and continue to play a key role in the quality assurance and success of NEP. The Nigerian model of ODL programme if adopted by other countries for their marginalized groups could overcome exclusion and fast track the attainment of Education for All (EFA) goals. en_US
