Due to the open and distance-learning framework of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), students lacked adequate infrastructure for learning, required facilitation and the opportunity to interact and collaborate. To fill this vacuum students improvised with unlicensed and expensive unqualified facilitators. At emerging platforms, we leverage technology to provide solutions that transform lives.
After extensive requirements gathering and needs assessment, we designed and deployed our solution - “NOUN iLEARN.” NOUN iLEARN is an e-learning ecosystem powered by a custom designed Learning Management System -iLEARN. This system comprises of the requisite multi-media content production and distribution, instructional design and technology, mobile & Online Interaction, E-learning Management & Technical Support. Today, students and facilitators of NOUN have access to Video and Audio lectures, Smart e-books, Online Interaction Systems, e-facilitation, Virtual Classrooms, Digital Media Center and online & offline support.
