GUIDE Association - Global Universities In Distance Education - was founded in 2005 by Marconi University with the aim to develop and support international cooperation and open and distance learning worldwide.

GUIDE Association - Global Universities In Distance Education arises from the need of worldwide Universities to develop and support, in a flexible manner, the distance learning sector by promoting cooperation and research, while respecting the cultural specificity of each member.

The Association was founded in 2005 by the Marconi University and officially launched during the first international conference in February 2006, having the significant title “Towards the development of Common Platform for Global Cooperation”.

By strengthening the role of higher education institutions as innovation and development drivers, GUIDE promotes the implementation of innovative results, insights and best practices in order to identify present, emergent and future needs of regional and international stakeholders and highlight potential areas for strategic partnership and transnational cooperation.

Nowadays the Association has reached a global dimension with more than 140 members Universities coming from all over the world. All the members work together to realize a global cooperation model for every university and institution linked to the e-learning and distance education sector.

All member universities share the common need to promote the spreading of an equal, supportive and sustainable knowledge thanks to the Information and Communication Technologies and quality standard models for distance education.
