The Asian Association of Open Universities (AAOU) Annual Conference has established itself as one of the leading educational events worldwide which is much awaited by world class educational experts in the field of open and distance learning (ODL), especially those from the Asia region. The Conference will hopefully provide the catalyst for knowledge sharing among participants, particularly in areas pertaining to the sub-themes. With 62 institutional members from 23 countries, the AAOU is certainly a force to be reckoned with. The recommendations and outcomes of this conference can have far-reaching benefits to the ODL community.
