Student First Approach

Students from different walks of life are choosing to ​enroll at the Distance Learning Centre, Ahmadu Bello University ​in record numbers and for many reasons but they all share the same goal: to earn a high-quality education. The DLC gives students the best of both worlds as they get to learn anywhere, anytime and anyhow from some of the best and brightest in their fields, as our e-Learning courses are taught by the same renowned faculty members who teach in our on-campus programs.

Internship

Part & Full time work placements

In a bid to make our programme more robust than any other in the country, we have partnered with big names in the corporate industry to provide students with special offers regarding career options from internships to CV re-writes and job placements during the semester and potentially full time upon completion of their prograamme.

VigiLearn

A consistent learning experience

A consistent learning experience, no matter what programme is our promise to you. As a distance learning student, your focus is on learning your course not on learning how to take your course. We strive to ensure a consistent experience through our VigiLearn application, enabling you to dive right in to your area of study.

CBT

Computer Based Testing

Computer-based testing (CBT) is a simple and better way to take tests. It allows for our testing centers to achieve more consistency in test delivery.
In addition to the consistency, it allows for faster scoring, reporting, and enhanced test security. Testing is done in person, on a computer, at an approved testing center.

VigiDrive

Learning your way

VigiDrive is just like any other flash drive which saves and stores your important files with its nifty 32GB storage. It is a plug and play device that requires no installation on your computer. Your VigiDrive can be connected to either your android phone using the micro USB port or to your computer using USB 3.0 port. Vigidrives are only compatible with some devices.

Compatible Devices

On The Go (OTG)

OTG (On The Go) is an addition to normal USB that allows one USB device to control another USB device. Basically OTG allows your phone/tablet to be a client when connected via USB to a computer, but OTG allows that same phone/tablet to be the host when certain USB devices get connected to it (because your phone/tablet is essentially a computer itself).

There are certain devices that DO NOT possess the proper hardware/firmware features necessary to work with VigiDrive and its software. We cannot realistically test all Android devices, but most of them will work without any special efforts. Minimum requirements are: Android OS 3.1 (Honeycomb) or newer, a USB port on the device, and access to the Google PlayStore through the device.  Hint: From the Google PlayStore, you can download and run a free app called “USB Host Diagnostics” which will perform several tests on your device and see if it will work.

Check for your phone/tablet compatibility below. More devices will be added to the list with time. (If your device is not listed, please check with your device manufacturer for OTG compatibility.)
