Five participants posing in front of banner

The University Council of Jamaica (UCJ) has signed an agreement with COL to help UCJ develop and pilot openly licensed online materials that will build the capacities of quality assurance personnel in 35 educational institutions across Jamaica.

These materials will be designed to assist Jamaica’s higher education institutions in implementing the 2022 Standards for Distance Education developed and disseminated with COL’s support. Ms Althea Heron, Executive Director of UCJ, emphasised the importance of COL’s support in promoting the benefits and potential of distance education. “In today’s rapidly changing world, innovation has become a constant feature of the educational landscape. This means that individuals must embrace the principles of lifelong learning to stay abreast of the latest trends and developments in their fields.”
