dc.description.abstract In this era of information revolution, it is imperative that governments expand the scalability , efficiency and quality of learning at all levels to help meet the global demands. This can only be achieved by using appropriate technologies, particularly those that support open distance and flexible learning” (ODFL). // Policy makers need to be futuristic and proactive enough in addressing the challenges to ODFL, capacity building, infrastructural development in a more friendly way in order address the employers and employees. // Statistics has it that there is an apparent decline in enrollment of students in TIVET institutions. This has come about due to rigidity in the programs, quality of graduates, relevance of the courses, time frames for the courses, static curriculum reviews among many other factors. // Following the fore cited preamble about the need to equip people with relevant technical knowledge to meet the tests of times, I propose to stage act on a video recorded movie as interviews with two institutional Directors/Rectors/Principals operating at the two extremes as follows: One Leader stuck to the traditional way of delivery and is in total dilemma about numbers, finances, cost effectiveness, infrastructure, personnel etc. ( encounters in running the institution…. all culminating into displeasure with work) The other leader having adopted a modern ODFL approach in delivery and is in joy and total peace at the work place. ( leader overwhelmed with numbers and is going satellite to reach more ) This I will do to emphasize the fact that application of technology through ODFL techniques has proved powerful and valuable in Institutional development in many countries and for educational purposes. // Paper ID: 415 en_US
