Excellence in Distance Education Awards: Call for submissions deadline extended

The deadline for submissions for COL’s 2011-2013 Excellence in Distance Education Awards (EDEA) has been extended to 30 June 2013. This prestigious Awards programme celebrates remarkable achievements, recognising local situations and needs, and not only large well-funded projects.

The awards will be presented at the Seventh Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning (PCF7) in Abuja, Nigeria in December 2013.

The EDEA recognises excellence in three categories:

  • Open and distance education materials (including open educational resources)
  • Institutional achievement
  • Distance learning experience awards in a degree-granting programme and in eLearning under difficult circumstances

Profiles of former winners are also available on COL’s website:


And a reminder: the extended deadline for submitting papers and proposals for the PCF7 programme is 15 June 2013:
