Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology Centre for e learning was created to reach the busy but education hungry students who are self-motivated to study but don’t want to or can’t attend the tradition classroom session. With e learning now one can study from the office or at home. As simple as that.

Our virtual learning environment is Moodle based which provides 24/7 accessibility to registered students. Moodle is very easy to learn and makes e-learning easy to grasp and students can learn from all over the world.
