Events that look weird or impossible years back are part of "normal" things in our contemporary world. Education has had its share of the paradigm shift in the anal of technological revolution. The paper discusses the adoption of open and distance education along the traditional face-to-face mode of educational delivery. The implication of this change in respect to curriculum development models, design and pedagogy and the role of instructors in open and distance education which are considered critical factors were analysed.
