Title: Lifelong learning in a network

Issue Date: 1-Jul-2005
Abstract: In our knowledge-based society learning will no longer exclusively be tied to the traditional educational institutions, but becomes lifelong. E-learning has enabled the establishment of networks of distributed collaborating learners, teachers and institutions. Lifelong learning in a network is quite different, because the student doesn’t belong to one institute and the roles of persons are no longer fixed. At the OUNL we are developing a set of models (a 'learning network'), technologies and open specifications in order to support networked learning. It will be related to the MSc-programme we are developing in collaboration with Sydney University and Florida State University.
Description: Paper accepted for ODLAA conference (Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia), titled 'breaking down barriers', Adelaide, 9-11 November, Australia. Will be published as a chapter in the book: 'Breaking Down Boundaries: The International Experience in Open, Distance and Flexible Education'
