Open Distance Learning in the European Community. Memorandum.
Commission of the European Communities, Brussels (Belgium).
This document outlines the importance of open distance learning in a broad range of education and training activities for the European Community (EC) and its Member States. It refers to actions in this area already taking place and shows how EC programs complement and are complemented by actions in the open distance learning field being taken within the context of existing programs. The paper indicates a need for policies and actions at institutional and Member State level that would extend the scope, power, and application of open distance learning. It also refers to areas in which a sharing of experience and expertise and possible joint actions at the European level could be taken within the framework of the creation of trans-European infrastructural networks for vocational and professional training.
