Restructuring Distance Education in Nigeria Using Information Technology

Fidelis Ejar Bessong, Ubana Arikpo Ubana, David E Udo


The closure of University satellite campuses on the 24th August 2001 by the Federal Government Confirms the shabby nature of Distance Education in Nigeria. Distance Education though set up to help solve educational problems, if not properly handled will exacerbate poor quality instruction and contribute to educational problems. Application of computer network services in DE will help enrich the programme and enhance qualitative education. This paper explores the concept and problems of DE in Nigeria and examines the feasibility of the application of Information Technology to it, speculating how the integration of IT may enhance the quality of the learning experience.
