As the name implies, the division is responsible for the affairs of distance students. The division also manages the centers and sub centers throughout the country. Any establishment of centers and sub centers is the responsibility of the division. The performance and services of Provincial Center Managers and Temporary Coordinators are part of the division’s task.

The division is made up of mostly instructional designers. The term instructional designer does not really portray what the team does but the team mainly helps with the development of study materials to support distance students. They train writers and markers, simplify raw work from writers and transform them to a much more user-friendly materials where students can easily use in the absence of a tutor or lecturer. For simplicity, their task starts from training writers right through to printing.
