Message from the from the Chair of Department, ODEL

In line with the University College mission ‘To provide quality training, research and innovation in order to meet the needs of a dynamic society’, the Kaimosi Friends University College has sought as a strategic goal, to enhance access to university education to meet the ever-increasing demand for higher education by establishing the Open, Distance and e-Learning Directorate under the School of Computing and Information Technology.

ODeL is one of the latest innovations by Kaimosi Friends University College and a flagship project by the Principal to facilitate high-quality online delivery of certificate, diploma, degree and postgraduate programmes to learners in various parts of the country, the East African community and beyond.

KAFUCO with the use of modern technologies is not only there to realise equitable access to higher education through e-Learning but also improve the quality of educational experience for our learners. The ODeL Directorate is modelled around a web-based Learning Management System (LMS), electronic community and administrative centres for students and schools. All programmes offered at the eLearning directorate are primarily delivered through the internet, with students taking sit-in examinations at the University.

With the changing global times occasioned by the sudden arrival of the COVID-19 virus, the Directorate of Open Distance and eLearning at KAFUCO has put together some of the best and brightest minds along with world-class learning resources in an effort to ensure that our students, wherever they may be, continue receiving the best education.

We look forward to having you onboard with us.
