Abstract

This paper presents the results of a three-year longitudinal study (2007–2010) on open distance learning (ODL) programs in Africa offered by the Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF). We focus on (1) a sociological and technological profile of the participants; (2) their motivations for enrolling in an open distance learning program; (3) their perceptions of ODL; (4) the challenges and satisfactions they experienced; and (5) the benefits they obtained after earning a diploma. We draw some conclusions about the pros and cons of ODL in Africa’s sociocultural landscape.
