E-learning as a Veritable Tool for Capacity Building in Adult Education and Open Distance Education in Nigeria
AbstractAdult education as a discipline has continued to play its role by providing, equipping and sustaining the needed manpower required by developing societies to improve themselves by making the adult working population functional. It uses open and distance learning as one of its effective tools. These roles can be improved by using e-learning training designs and techniques that have open the learning space and broken the barriers of distance to all through modern technology. This paper examined the concept of e-learning, scope and objectives of adult education, Open and Distance Learning (ODL). But e-learning designs and techniques have not been fully explored due to inadequate availability of electricity and internet facilities with high level of computer non-compliance adults and illiteracy among the adult population. These hurdles can be overcome by providing the appropriate Information and Communication Technology (ICT) facilities with the formulation of enabling policies and sensitization of the adult population.
