This is largely in response to the growing number of Kenyans seeking access to technical education, but who may not afford face-to-face instruction. The most active programme so far is in business,

human resource , communiity development,information studies and short course training in various skills. Plans are underway to extend the programme and move to pure Distance Learning programmes. 

In an attempt to achieve the foregoing objective, ODFL has been mandated through strategic to promote and facilitate the expansion of open and distance education with an aim of increasing access , relevancy, efficienc,, quality, equity and promote/ strengthen sustainable livelihoods 

This will be realized through the following strategies:

Further, See also have the mandate to increase access to higher education by implementing the following strategies:

  • Development of new demand-driven Self-sponsored programmes.
