The Open University of Japan, Center of ICT and Distance Education (OUJ-CODE)

Center of ICT and Distance Education, the Open University of Japan (OUJ-CODE; formerly, National Institute of Multimedia Education, NIME).  The Open University of Japan (OUJ) is a distance university, which was established in 1983 in order to provide a quality higher education in innovative and distance ways. OUJ delivers learning content and various student support services through broadcasting (TV and radio), printed materials and/or the Internet. As the core university in lifelong learning (LLL) in Japan, OUJ opens to everyone in wide-ranging stages of life and realizes learning spaces in which students can learn “anytime and anywhere”.

National Institute of Multimedia Education (NIME), a founding member of GLOBE, was abolished in 2009 and merged into OUJ as an institute, called “Center of ICT and Distance Education (CODE)”. CODE succeeded the main functions to support HE institutions in the context of ICT use for educational reforms, including the national portal and content search system, under the governmental funding. In addition, CODE extends the functions beyond the differences between school categories as an institution of the national center of LLL, OUJ.
