    Open & Distance Learning (ODL)

    Provides flexibility through a completely online approach, eliminating learning barriers arising from significant commitments related to career, family, personal, or community engagements.

    Why ODL?

    In line with rapid development in technology for education, teaching and learning in higher education institutions are no longer dependent on traditional delivery methods. Hence, various technology and online applications available nowadays have opened up to more fun and engaging learning activities for learners. More student-centered learning is achievable.

    Through our ODL programs, learners will be exposed to active learning as well as self-learning. Throughout the study process, learners will interact with peers via online discussion threads and engage themselves in in-depth discussions with lecturers through synchronous and asynchronous meetings.

    Open & Distance Learning has become a prominent approach that caters to students, especially working adults. At ODL UTHM, we are trying our best to re-design our programs and their implementation to suit our learners' actual needs.

    Our Learning Management System is designed to provide a self-exploratory approach for learners.  Topics in each course are arranged to provide a constructive learning journey from start to end. The monitoring system in our LMS allows learners to self-check their progress from time to time.
