I’ve been sent this is a Google ALert several times which suggests the the OU UK is getting this PR shot in the right place. What interests me is if they are No.1. as a distance learning business school – this must sreuly remain the OU’s USP? Even if we see every-other university/college offering a distance learning/remote-e-learning business/leadership package of some kind.
Warwick University are the latest to join the distance learning offering.
This has to be a combination of a) people wanting and needing to study while in work and/or from home as well as tuition fees … though at the postgraduate level these would be substantial and self-funded anyway? And b) what the technology, and its inexpensive/ease of use qualities now can offer.
We live in fascinating and fluid times. As an outside I feel like a canoist in white-water … while these institutions, their departments and personnel are being tossed around in the maelstrom of change.
