Issue Date: 13-Mar-2015
Abstract: Large sectors of society are digitizing, resulting in changed practices in journalism, entertainment, and business in general. Higher education is not immune to these changes. Digitization processes are well underway and the possibility of new opportunities are significant. Before we can realize these opportunities, we need to better understand the history and current state of research in openness, distance education, and blended and online learning. The research in these fields provides a firm foundation for building tomorrows open education system, one where access and quality are available to all learners.
