Online, open and flexible systems deliver quality higher education, student success, improved capacity, and cost-effective pathways to learning. Funding is critical to reap the benefits. These are the central arguments of the Paris Message, entitled “Online, Open and Flexible Higher Education for the Future We Want”.
15 clear points call for for governments, higher education leaders, academic staff and students to take action now. In addition, a call is made for international cooperation on online, open and flexible systems to monitor take up, to promote north-south-south collaboration and to prepare for specific initiatives on quality summits, doctoral student collaboration and strengthened research and development.
If you care for the future of education, please help us by forwarding the Paris Message to colleagues, management and policy makers in your country and region..
