This paper examines the possibility of instituting online distance learning programs in Nigeria as an alternative to more traditional forms of higher education. While arguing for the incredible benefits of such a system, as well as the need for better higher education in Nigeria, paper nevertheless concludes that online distance learning may simply be technically impossible for Nigeria in the near future.

From the Paper:

"The 20th century was the first century when, on a global level, education and individual knowledge could be said to have a profound impact on the fate of nations. Knowledge has become intimately tied to economic development by the end of the 20th century. We have little reason to suspect that this connection will not intensify in the coming decades. In the interest of constructing knowledge societies and economies, analysts repeatedly recognize the importance of higher education (Saint et al., 2004). Improving higher education access and quality should stand as one of the primary goals in all nations, though perhaps especially within the developing world. Nowhere are the difficulties of development more blatantly highlighted than in Africa, particularly in the nations of sub-Saharan Africa. "
