The Commonwealth of Learning (COL)’s President and CEO Professor Asha Kanwar congratulates the Botswana Open University (BOU) on transitioning from the Botswana College of Open and Distance Learning (BOCODOL) into an open university, effective 1st December 2017. BOU’s mandate is to make education accessible to all Batswana, especially out-of-school youth and adults, through the use of open and distance learning (ODL).

COL assisted BOCODOL during the transition process by providing technical advice and reviewing the institution’s systems, and by supporting capacity-building in open educational resources (OER), information communication technology (ICT) and ODL.

BOCODOL has been a committed member of the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth (VUSSC) and housed the Southern African Development Community Centre for Distance Education (SADC-CDE).
