The aim of this article is to investigate the integration of indigenous knowledge systems (IKSs) into adult learning facilitation at a distance. Pertinent issues in a majority of indigenous knowledge systems, such as information access and communication mechanisms, may be built into the process of adult learning facilitation to ensure a successful learning experience. Issues such as mnemonics, metaphorical speech, storytelling, demonstration and observation, group learning, visualisation and repetition may serve as learning-enhancing techniques. In this way, IKSs may come to the rescue of adult learning facilitators who teach at a distance in their endeavour to mediate a successful learning event.
