Open and Distance Learning Policy
A conducive policy environment directly influences an education initiative's success and can help countries regulate educational quality within their jurisdictions. Thoughtfully designed Open and Distance Learning specific policies can be integrated into existing education and development policy, to help increase access to ODL while regulating cross border education; develop skills training programmes and quality assurance (QA) guidelines; provide a realistic budgetary framework and incentive to adopt cost effective teaching and learning options; and direct the expansion of education-related infrastructure, such as information and communications technologies (ICTs)
