noukMasinde Muliro University of Science and Technology in collaboration with the National Open University of Kenya (NOUK) have formulated terms of engagement that aim at bringing on board students on Open Distance and E-Learning platform. 

Speaking after a courtesy call to the Vice Chancellor, NOUK team leader J. O. Odumbe stated that resources for the programme which is already in place will be made available and be incorporated so that the University can benefit from it. 

He also noted that MMUST is miles ahead with the programme because apart from providing the Self Instructional Materials (SIMs), there are other activities that MMUST is offering. These activities are online tutorial support, harmonization of courses, updating and reviewing of materials, further training teams for further development, joint ventures for materials development, physical libraries & e-books among others.

Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics and Students Affairs, Prof. Josephine Ngaira presented a list of programmes that have been reviewed and submitted. The NOUK officials have been requested to provide a list of courses that they expect to offer to be compared with the MMUST courses. In cases where two or more similar courses are acceptable, none will be discarded but a combination of these courses would be made. 

During the meeting with the Directorate of Open Distance and E-Learning, copyright concerns were also raised. It was observed that the consent of the owners of the SIMs would be sought as well as their recognition on the SIMs themselves. Also the owners would be compensated accordingly in relation to either the publishing act or statements, set at the committee level, in the soon to be developed MOU. 

NOUK officials are in two groups: The present one is catering for Western Kenya region (MMUST, MOI University and Maseno University) while another team is dealing with Mount Kenya University.
