Open, Distance and e-Learning is an initiative of the University of Nairobi for providing and maintaining equitable opportunity for Accessing Quality University Education to Kenyans and beyond using ODeL modes.  It is committed to being a world-class hub for open, distance and e-learning.

To enable it to carry out its mandate, the Open, Distance and e-Learning Campus works in collaboration with the Schools, Faculties, and Institutes to enable them to develop quality self-instructional courseware for diversifying, enriching learning experiences, their delivery modes and increasing access to quality university education. Through this arrangement, the Campus has been able to collaboratively develop instructional materials in both print and online in all Schools, Faculties and Institutes spread across all the six colleges of the University. These instructional materials have facilitated the seamless adoption of ODeL modes of teaching and learning at the University of Nairobi.
