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 12th August 2009, is an outcome from a collaborative effort between three universities: Open University Malaysia (OUM), Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) and University of the Philippines Open University (UPOU). In 2015, Hanoi Open University (HOU) and Indonesia Open University (known as Universitas Terbuka Indonesia) joined the collaboration. The editorial staffs consist of academicians 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 in this journal.
