Title: Open distance learning - ODL
Post by: ETQA Administrator on April 18, 2017, 05:30:12 PM
Open (and) distance learning (ODL): The use of distance education methods to support the realisation of open learning purposes and principles. Omission of the ‘and’ as in ‘Open Distance Learning’, and possibly the use of the acronym 'ODL”, imply erroneously that ALL distance programmes are based on open learning principles. This policy framework does not support this term because of the ambiguity associated with its meaning.
