Towards implementing the university Strategic Plan (SP) for 2020-2025, the IUM Centre for Distance and eLearning (IUM-CDeL) has adopted a holistic approach to running academic programmes (AP). In line with the SP of the university, CDeL runs online distance learning programmes so as to edge closer to achieving SDG 4 (if not achieved completely), Vision 2030 target and the National Development Plan (NDP) of providing education to all. To achieve this, the centre is working in collaboration with the six faculties of the university, two centres of teaching and learning and the university's administrative offices to offer the Online Distance Learning (ODL) programmes.
The centre’s main objective is to make university education accessible to all in Namibia and beyond (including SADC and the world at large). The Centre leverages on the university e-Learning platform (IUM LMS), Multimedia technologies and expertise to facilitate the online teaching and learning. To ensure that the centre’s programmes meet stakeholders (including students, National Council Higher Education and the Namibian Qualification Authority) expectations and also that courses / programmes are up to date with societal and technology trends, stakeholder evaluation of the centre’s programmes will be undertaken from time to time.
Starting in 2022, the IUM-CDel will run six (6) certificate programmes, two (2) Bachelor programmes, two (2) Bachelor Honours programmes, two (2) postgraduate Diploma programmes, one (1) Masters programme and a number of short courses (depending on the market demand and Institutional trends).
