About The Journal

The ASEAN Journal of Open and Distance Learning (AJODL) is dedicated to the sharing of knowledge, ideas and experience pertaining to Open and Distance Learning (ODL).

The journal, launched on 12 August 2009, is an outcome a collaborative effort between three universities: Open University Malaysia (OUM), Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) and University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU). Professor Zoraini Wati Abas was the first AJODL Chief Editor. The premier issue was printed to mark its inauguration of the journal. In 2015, Hanoi Open University (HOU) and Indonesia Open University (known as Universitas Terbuka Indonesia or UT) joined the collaboration. Subsequently, the online journal issues are published under the Editor-in-Chief, a position that is rotated among the journal's Publication Committee Chairpersons. The editorial members consist of academics from all five universities. These universities are also members of a joint collaborative research group known as OU5.

The AJODL is dedicated to the promotion of ODL, particularly in the ASEAN region. We welcome contributors from all around the world to submit their articles for this journal.
