An Award to Noun for Excellence in Organizational Leadership in Open Educational Resources

The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) was honoured with  an Organizational Leadership Award For Excellence In Open Educational Resources .the award was granted by the Open Education Consortium's Board Of Directors at Krakow Poland.

The Organizational Leadership Award is granted by the OE Consortium Board of Trustees to an organization that exemplifies extraordinary leadership in the field of open education serving as inspirational model of engagement and commitment.

NOUN already launched its first 40 OER-based courses and its first 3 OER-based MOOCs. Hopefully NOUN can serve as an inspiring and promising exemplar for other (open) universities. Read more
