The difficulties that flexible & flexible learning students experience while studying via distance education pertain not only to the difficulties of negotiating learning on their own but to a variety of factors affecting their studies. Lack of resources and facilities,late delivery of course books, lack of electricity in remote locations, irregular transport services coupled with the rugged terrain and poor postal services affect DFL students' studies in many ways. Students who live in rural communities often take part in communal or village activities as they are obliged to do so. The University draws a lot of students during enrolment and once enrolled are left to swim or sink. To be an effective provider of education in the region then responding to the needs of the students and an awareness of the students' social, economical and cultural practices must be taken into account by the University and be given top priority.
