Editorial
The inaugural issue of the DEASA-SADC CDE
International Journal of Open and DistanceLearning 
(IJODL) came out hardly three years ago, in September 2007, under sponsorshipof the Southern Africa Development Community Centre for Distance Education (SADCCDE). This was a momentous occasion for ten countries that collaboratively came under theleadership of the Distance Education Association of Southern Africa (DEASA) to launch aregional mouthpiece for ODL research in Southern Africa.While the formation of IJODL was initially motivated by a desire to provide DEASA memberswith a platform for disseminating and sharing information on a plethora of distance educationdevelopments sweeping across the region, it soon became evident from the interest shownby researchers from outside the region that IJODL would transform into an international journal faster than the Editorial Board had been planned. There is no doubt that the growinginternational interest in IJODL is attributable to the editorial policy that seeks to establish ascholarly publication of repute, which has a strong preference for original research-basedarticles of high quality. The current editorial policy requires the IJODL to undertakecontinuous self-evaluation to ensure that it publishes papers of the highest quality.In the previous issue improvements in the quality of papers were acknowledged andassociated with a thorough reviewer selection procedure and enhanced rigour in the blindreview process used by the IJODL. However, what is most noteworthy in the current issue isthe diversity of contributors. This issue of the IJODL contains contributions from SouthernAfrica, East Africa, West Africa, Asia and North America. This is the first time, but certainlynot the last, where the IJODL has contributors from across three continents. While theIJODL will continue to encourage international contributors to bring balance and provideinternational perspectives, the journal would remain faithful to its founding principles andcontinue to serve as the foremost platform for ODL researchers in Southern Africa. TheIJODL is also considering the possibility of thematic publications under Special Issues, whichprovide opportunities for thorough and sustained treatment of selected topics.The current issue of the IJODL contains seven research articles that cover a wide range of open and distance learning subjects, including learner support, materials development anduse of technology in distance learning. Unlike previous issues, contributions in the currentissue have utilised a richer variety of research methodologies, including case studies,surveys and meta-analyses.T.J. Nhundu PhDEditor-in-Chief
