National ODL Policy and Practice in the Commonwealth
In the wake of the pandemic, many institutions have been offering education using distance, blended or online methods. Sometimes this occurs in the absence of any national or institutional policy. Where national policies exist, they are not always available in a digital format. Sometimes issues related to ODL provision are embedded in other policy documents, such as ICT policies or Education Sector plans. This publication includes examples of policies which are currently available (as of July 2021) and could inform new policy development in countries where a policy framework currently does not exist or needs to be updated.
