  9. Compare different institutional arrangements, uses of technology and instructional approaches in the context of higher education (open universities, virtual universities).

This module examines the development and current landscape of global open and distance education and Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) across developed and developing countries. Key topics include cross-border partnerships, emerging business models, academic quality, cultural and linguistic opportunities and challenges, and innovative packaging of content including MOOCs and Open Educational Resources (OERs).. Additionally, the course compares and examines key global professional and international associations (UNESCO, ICDE, AAOU, OECD, EDEN, USDLA, The World Bank, etc.) the resources these organizations offer, and their diverse roles in promoting internationalism, global trade, and the quality assurance and management of global educational services. A variety of open and distance learning providers representing single and dual mode institutions and ODL universities/organizations from developed and developing countries will be discussed. Private sector providers and government agencies are also covered in these analyses.

All course material will be provided as an open education resource (OER).
