 Welcome Message

Rongo University established a unit of Open Distance and e-Learning (ODeL)  to accord educational opportunities to learners who for some reason are not able to attend residential courses on campus.

The unit has borrowed from best practices worldwide to roll out programs that focus on quality in material development and delivery, enhanced learner satisfaction and efficient and effective service delivery. Open Distance and e-Learning students at Rongo University will receive the same quality of education as those on campus. In addition, the ODeL unit has set up structures to maximize interactions between learners and their lecturers and also to ensure that distance learning students can interact among themselves, be active participants in the vibrant University life and access all University services including library, counseling, academic advising and career information.
