The need to use flexible strategies in teaching and learning is quite pertinent in the Ministry of General Education. It is from this perspective the MoGE through the DODE has set up an ELearning platform that will ensure increased access to the provision of quality equitable education to the out of school children, youth and adults and also to supplement the conventional education system.

Our mandate of DODE is to provide access to quality education to the out of school youths and adults using alternative methodologies and technologies. DODE has three units Educational Broadcasting Services, Distance Education, Open Learning which hosts adult literacy which is a sub sector.

In each of the province, there are Open Initiative schools (OIS) whose mandate is to offer flexible learning systems.
