OPEN DISTANCE & E-LEARNING DIRECTORATE
PROF. NELSON OLUOCH JAGERO DIRECTOR
Distance education is any teaching and learning process in which all or most of the teaching is conducted by someone separated by space and/or time from the learner, with the effect that all or most of the communication between teachers and learners is through media, either electronic or printed technologies. The rationale for distance education has been to open opportunity for learners to study regardless of geographic, socio-economic or other constraints. The openness of distance education is seen in relatively flexible organizational structures, delivery and communication patterns, and use of various technologies in support of learning. ODEL allows learners and facilitators to respond and adapt better to the emerging technology and changing landscape of education in the 21st century. ODEL is therefore committed to meeting the changing needs of our society by developing learning opportunities that increase learners’ access, support, success, and provides quality instruction.

Thank you for being interested in knowing about Chuka University. Our University offers high quality and affordable university education. We assure the people of Kenya that our facilities are used in the most efficient way possible for the benefit of the Nation.
Chuka University was the first institution of higher learning to be established in the former Eastern Province. The government's objective of establishing the institution was to enhance education access and equity to the people in the region and Kenya at large. This is after the government realized that Education leads to better economic, social and political governance and is a catalyst for transforming Kenya into an industrialized middle-income nation as envisaged in Vision 2030.
Establishment of Chuka University has led to the congregation of students and staff from all parts of the country from different cultures. Apart from specialty courses, our students are taught core courses and participate in extra curricula activities that promote peace-building and reconciliation. Peaceful co-existence among our students is a demonstration of how mankind should live on earth.
