ODeL Learning


Departmental Motto:

Technical & Vocational Skills for Sustainable Development


Increase in access to education and training of citizens in many countries, especially in third world countries has been a challenge to the respective governments. This has been because a great portion of the population is not in a position to fit in the conventional schools and colleges due to various reasons, for example, work schedules, cost of training, and family obligations.

Thus, the concept of flexible and blended skills development is the way to go in the modern digital world to try and expand access to education and skills development. Michuki T.T.I open, distance & e-Learning learning department (ODeL) has the following objectives:-
