Rationale

In this increasingly open world, openness in education has become an imperative. Here is now a growing movement towards the sharing of knowledge resources across institutions and even nations.  Educational institutions must be able to harness the affordances of available learning resources and technologies and tap appropriate pedagogical designs to make quality academic programs within the reach of more diverse set of learners.
