Open Distance Learning (ODL) is a different way of learning

ODL is a different way of learning... there is a physical distance between you and your university. For most of us, this means that our previous learning experiences will not have prepared us for the Unisa study journey. In distance learning, YOU are responsible for your studies. You don’t attend daily lectures. You learn from a distance and you connect to the university mostly via the internet.

But this doesn’t mean that you are on your own. Unisa has a number of support services for our students - from tutorial support and counselling, to online tools.

Prepare for Open Distance Learning (ODL)


How ready are you for ODL?

Many of us don't know what it’s really like to study through distance learning, because most of our schooling and post-school education was completed through contact or face-to-face learning. We have developed this “readiness tool” to help you assess how ready you are for distance learning. It won’t take much of your time and is easy to complete, so try it!
