Open & Distance Learning (ODL)


Open & Distance Learning at UKM

Our Open & Distance Learning (ODL) programmes offer flexibility, complete and interactive learning content with self-directed learning strategies. Our lecturers are very professional and skilled in delivering quality education, ensuring students get the best learning experiences that ODL can offer.



Learning can take place anywhere, anytime and anyhow


Study entirely online and without having to be on campus

Multiple Modality

Various delivery methods include synchronous face-to-face meetings and asynchronous interactions

Self-Instructional Materials

Access complete learning materials & interactive activities through our learning management system (LMS), designed specifically for distance learners

Why ODL?

Offers flexibility through a fully online approach in order to remove learning barriers due to high commitments pertaining to career, family, personal or communities. 

Why ODL?

In line with rapid development in technology for education, teaching and learning in higher education institutions are no longer dependent on traditional delivery methods. Hence, various technology and online applications available nowadays have opened up to more fun and engaging learning activities for learners. More student-centered learning is achievable.

Through our ODL programs, learners will be exposed to active learning as well as self-learning. Throughout the study process, learners will interact with peers via online discussion threads and engage themselves in in-depth discussions with lecturers through synchronous and asynchronous meetings.

Open & Distance Learning has become a prominent approach that caters to students, especially working adults. At ODL UKM, we are trying our best to re-design our programs and their implementation to suit our learners’ actual needs.

Our Learning Management System is designed to provide a self-exploratory approach for learners.  Topics in each course are arranged to provide a constructive learning journey from start to end. The monitoring system in our LMS allows learners to self-check their progress from time to time.
