COL will support educational institutions in the small states and least developed countries (LDCs) of the Commonwealth to adopt open distance and eLearning (ODeL) systematically through augmenting available technologies and capacities. This support, in project mode, will be available for a limited period only. In instances of successful completion of expected outcomes, it could extend up to three years. Positive evaluation could result in the partner institution being designated a ‘COL Centre of ODeL.’
- This call is only for recognised educational institutions in the small states and least developed countries (LDCs) of the Commonwealth.
- Proposal must be aligned with COL’s theory of change as in the Strategic Plan (2021-2027). Institutions already implementing ODeL with COL support or in advanced stages of ODeL implementation need not respond to this call for proposal.
