International Council For Open And Distance Education


We are delighted to announce that DIME ONLINE has become a member of the International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) which is the leading global membership organisation for open, distance, flexible and online education, including e-learning.

This membership will enable DIME ONLINE to develop mutually beneficial partnerships with fellow education institutions, networks and systems and participate in a range of projects. This membership also provides DIME with a voice in the discussion of major policy initiatives; at present, ICDE is a key partner for UNESCO and is actively engaged in helping to set the Education 2030 agenda – ‘Towards inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all’.

DIME ONLINE’s ethos closely matches that of ICDE, advocating for “access, equity and quality learning through online, open and flexible learning” and we are greatly looking forward to working with ICDE colleagues and fellow members. Watch this space for further updates.
