ODeL Modes of Delivery

The assumption guiding ODeL course/programme modes of delivery is that learners and the tutors will be separated in time and place or most of the time. As a result, delivery is built on the following four scenarios as provided by the Commission of University Education:

Scenario 1: Same time, same place: Classroom teaching, face- to-face tutorials, seminars, workshops, and residential schools;
Scenario 2: Same time, different place: Audio conferences and
video conferences, television, one-way or two-way videos etc.;
Scenario 3: Different time, same place: Learning resource
centers which learners visit at their leisure;
4: Different time, different place: Home study, computer conferencing, and tutorial support by e-mail and fax communication
