Does the growth of distance learning mean that Open Universities risk becoming “the University of Last Resort”?
This was the question asked by Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of South Africa (Unisa), Mandla Makhanya, on the release of the Department for Higher Education and Training White Paper on Post-School Education and Training. The White Paper proposes provision of distance programmes at TVET and community college levels. ICDE Secretary General, Gard Titlestad also spoke at the launch.
