Directorate of Instructional Resources Development - Welcome

Welcome to the Directorate of Instructional Resources Development (DIRD), National Open University of Nigeria. The DIRD comprises the following: Course Materials Development, Printing & Publishing (including Docutech), and Multimedia/E-Learning Units. We are charged with the responsibility of building on existing synergy in these activity centres to provide contextually relevant self-learning instructional materials in diverse delivery formats: Print, electronic and other media.

A major task of the DIRD is to carry out quality auditing with a view to ensuring that NOUN course materials meet global standards and instructional objectives. We realise that instructional resources provision is a process and the DIRD is committed not only to making course materials more readily available, it also desires to make the process quicker
