Noun Online Facilitation 2020_1 Academic Semester

- No comments

NOUN students are encouraged to continue with their studies as we all comply with the stay-at-home instructions to stop the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
As we are aware NOUN as an Open and Distance Learning Institution (ODL) allows learning at a distance as it focuses on open access to education freeing learners from the constraints of time and place. In spite of the current challenges NOUN students are encouraged to take advantage of the Online Facilitation sessions made available for many courses
Online Facilitation offers the opportunity for students to engage with facilitators on the course materials. Typically, the facilitation exercise comprises of three main activities:

1.      Video Conferencing Sessions: Here the facilitator will come online for one hour based on a predetermined schedule (See Here) . The facilitator will briefly explain concepts in a course module or unit under consideration after which he/she answers questions students may have on the course material. All the video conferencing session will be recorded and made available on the NOUN Learning Space for review and the benefit of those that could not join the sessions.

2.      Discussion Forums: An online discussion forum is a learning tool that gives students a place to express their opinion and understanding regarding the topic outlined for discussion. Students will be able to challenge one another to think deeply about the course. The online facilitator will guide the process.

3.      Chat Sessions with other students in the course
Students may participate in the activities using internet-enabled smart devices i.e. smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. Throughout the exercise, students are expected to exhibit basic online etiquette
All NOUN’s online platforms remain accessible to staff and students. Specifically, online learning platforms can be accessed via Here and So Here

615 Prisoners Studying Free In NOUN ― Says NOUN VC

- No comments

Prof. Abdalla Adamu, the Vice-Chancellor of the National Open University in Nigeria (NOUN) says the institution has admitted a total of 615 prisoners.

Adamu made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

He said that all the inmates were studying free as NOUN was responsible for payment of their fees up to the Ph.D. level.

The professor of science education said that it had been his joy to encourage prisoners to acquire education and be useful in re-integration into society.

Adamu added that he was happy seeing people who were incarcerated and had no hope, with some of them on death row and life sentence, studying.

The vice-chancellor told NAN that the inmates had a preference for studying Peace and Conflict Resolution as their major courses.

Adamu said that NOUN, established in 2002, also encouraged people living with disabilities to enroll in it.

“We don’t want a situation where people with so-called learning disabilities are separated from society.

“If anybody with a learning disability wishes to enroll in NOUN, he is welcome.

“We do not have braille books but we have other items of technologies; even phones now have enhancement technologies that they can use but they have not been able to explore them.

“We are living in an inclusive world, we want these people to be part of the society because they live in the society; so, we integrate them as much as we can,’’ he said.

The vice-chancellor noted that the Federal Government had been supporting the institution, but said that NOUN needed more funds to do better.

NOUN Students Are Agitating for NYSC Mobilization

- No comments


The vice Chancellor prof Abdalla Adamu , NOUN staff ,management, students leader and stakeholder , Distinguished Members of the Press, Ladies and Gentlemen.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppresor, it must be demanded by the oppressed Martin Luther King, jnr

This is call to the masses.  A call for justice. A call for our voice to be heard. A call for implementation of the national open university of Nigeria Act. 
This is a call to demand our rights. A call to stand for justice and fairness. A call to consolidate our future, our generation and our people. 

It is no more a news that the bill that allow National Open University of Nigeria students to participate in the ONE year NYSC scheme and also our law graduates to be admitted into Nigeria Law school has been signed since Dec 04 2018 more than 1 and half year ago. But it is so sadden that ever since this acts has been signed into law Nothing has been done to implement the Acts,  while Nigerian Constitutions make a provision that any law signed by the president must be implemented latest 6 months.

The National Open University of Nigeria is a Federal Open and Distance Learning Institution Accredited by NUC. The first of its kind in the West Africa sub-region. It is Nigeria's largest tertiary institution in terms of students population.

We pay heavily to afford National Open University terms and conditions as directed by NUC but we are deprive of our rights like other Accredited Tertiary  Institutions.

I have seen a Nigeria graduate from National Open University of Benin Republic serving in Nigeria,  even with International treatment.

I have also seen a Graduate of National Open University of Nigeria that was denied of an employment due to lack of NYSC discharge certificate.


1. We pledge to the Federal Government or order the Implementation of NOUN acts, which was signed into law on Dec 04 2018 to allow Graduates of National Open University of Nigeria to participate in the scheme and be admitted into Nigeria Law school respectively.

2. National Open University of Nigeria 2020 Graduates must be mobilized together with the 2020 Batch A.

3. We give federal government Seven (7) working days ultimatum to find solution to this.

Failure to Comply with this, we shall all match as the largest university in Nigeria in all the 36 States and make it known to the world that we have been treated like a third class citizens by our government and all the activities of the government will be disrupted through social media and peaceful solidarity protest.

We are not for war but for peace.

An injustice to one is an injustice to all. 


1. We are aware that NYSC Batch A time table is out and NOUN graduates must be mobilized alongside too.

2.  Dignitaries or personnel may plead for us to be patient and wait for Directive of the management. We know this tactics too well, we will never fail for this.

Enough is Enough
