Education

THE University of Technology’s department of open and distance learning (DODL) has increased its study centres this year.
The increase comes after five new study centres were established in Morobe and Southern Highlands, for its adult matriculation programme.
Public relations officer Tabitha Wosse said the new centres were Lae Secondary School, Bugandi Secondary School, Malahang Technical Secondary School and Umi Technical Vocational Training School in Morobe, and Mogol Secondary School in SHP.
“The opening of the five new centres for the department now brings to 20, the number of study centres throughout the country,” Wosse said.
“Registration at these centres began on January 21 and ended on February 1. Late registration will commence on Feb 4-15.”
Wosse said the DODL also announced that it was phasing out printing of course materials.
“The DODL offices will be distributing only electronic copies of their course materials starting this semester,” she said.
“This shift is a way forward for their online learning programme.
“The department is advising its students to bring their flash drives to collect course materials upon registration.”
The academic year for the department commenced on February 4.
