Candidates must register properly at the beginning of every session. Apart from the fact that student will not be allowed to participate in any examination for which they have not registered, it is in their interest to do so as most other activities including access to examination result and ID card are dependent on registration.
Studying the Study material
Obviously, the Distance Learning mode is a new experience for most students. Many students wait until the last minute before they start interacting with the learning materials. This is not advisable. Students are expected to go through their learning materials diligently, network with their academic advisors, fellow students and seek assistance from their academic advisors as the need arises.
Students are advised to register online for the use of the University Health Centre. Please fill and print the medical form on the portal after which you proceed to University Health Centre (Jaja) on the main campus or Medical Centre at DLC Moniya Office, to complete the registration. Remember to also print the authorization letters for Medical registration and take it along to the University Health Centre on campus or at Morohundiya office.
The University of Ibadan Radio Station, Diamond FM101.1 runs a weekly programme for Distance Learners on Wednesday from 11.00 a.m. to 12.00 noon. In addition, throughout the year, Diamond FM runs DLC tutorials. Students should engage this new experience. Schedule of Broadcast is on the website. Meanwhile, there are audio tutorial materials available in courses from faculties of Arts, Education and the Social Sciences.
During interactive sessions when students shall be on campus, they are expected to relate with one another as much as possible in order to form discussion groups which will enhance learning. Grouping is best done on basis of location, profession, or same GSM lines.
Students’ Annual Get-together party is encouraged after the last paper of every session. This is to enable students socialise with their colleagues and interact with officers and staff of the Centre.
The best graduating student in both the Diploma and the Degree Programme shall receive a prize award from the Centre. This is done to motivate students towards academic excellence.
Conduct During Interactive Session
The rules and regulations that apply to regular students apply also to Distance Learners no matter where they are. Degrees and certificates of the University of Ibadan are awarded only to students who are “found worthy in character and in Learning”. The University expects its students to be well-behaved at all times. You are all encouraged to go through the students’ Handbook of the University.
Littering of the University premises is against the rules. Use refuse bins at all times. You are also advised to use walkways and not to walk across lawns. As you come into campus, you will observe the beautiful serene, humane and green environment of the University. You should please help us to preserve this unique atmosphere for learning and research.
Loud music, honking, shouting or speaking at the top of one’s voice especially in academic areas such as the Libraries and Classroom areas is not permitted. Distance Learners for good reasons often congregate to hold discussions. Please, do this in classrooms where available or open spaces far away from classrooms and rest areas. Be mindful of the needs of others. Distance Learning requires more self-discipline and responsibility as you will study at your own pace.
Remember! Your studies start as soon as you complete your registration and obtain your course materials.
Self-study group enhances learning. Make effective use of the self- study group by being active in your group as either arranged by the school or individually.
