Institute for Open Distance Learning

Welcome to the Institute for Open Distance Learning

The Institute for Open and Distance Learning (IODL) is an academic unit of UNISA, charged with the responsibility to undertake pragmatic and reflexive research including the organization of academic and professional research training programmes in Open and Distance Learning (ODL).  This is in response to the growing demand not only for qualitative higher degree qualifications and professional studies in ODL niche areas but also in strengthening ODL practice in UNISA by benchmarking it against ODL institutional practice globally.
