In order to promote access to education and the innovative use of ICT; and in line with its vision and mission, MMUST is widening the gates to learning by launching its Open and Distance E-learning (ODEL) Platform in 2014. The institution recognises that there are people who may miss out on opportunities to learn due to several reasons; such as distance, inability to obtain time off work from employer, financial challenges, among others. Hence the ODeL Platform offers one a second chance at learning. ODeL supports a blended mode of teaching and learning, whereby learning is facilitated by more than one mode of delivery, i.e. e-learning, discussion forums, and brief face-to-face interactions. This mode of study requires that the student plan effectively on time management; study methods; revision strategies; participate in online discussions, and to apply what is learnt to real life situations. Hence, effective study is ensured.
