THE Namibian College of Open Learning (NAMCOL) has rolled out a country-wide awareness campaign to sensitise Namibians about its role and change negative perceptions which has tainted the image of the institution.
Titled ‘The NAMCOL Mandate Campaign’, the campaign will run until June 2018 and will use a variety of mediums including television, radio, print and social media.
The campaign will also include road shows under the theme, ‘The Great Namibian Journey, which is expected to stretch across all 14 regions.
It aims at informing the nation on NAMCOL’s legislative mandate and relevance in Namibia today. The institution will publish 12 editorials in local publications in hope that this brings perspective and respect to open and distance learning (ODL).
Speaking at the launch of the campaign recently, NAMCOL Director Heroldt Murangi stressed the unequivocal role ODL, which he says further needs to be clearly understood as a key contributor and provider of education.
