Part of the mission of the Commonwealth of Learning is to show intellectual leadership in the application of technology to learning. Although electronic communication is fast becoming a vehicle of choice for the discourse that sustains academic debate, the spoken and printed word retains a special role. The country visits that I undertake for COL include speaking engagements that allow me to explore a range of topics touching on learning for development. This booklet is a partial response to the requests that I receive for “hard copies” of these addresses and follows a similar publication in 2005 containing six speeches I gave in Africa.- Sir John Daniel, April 2006 Contents: 1) Mega-universities = Mega quality? / 2nd World Summit of Mega-Universities, New Delhi, 25 September 2005, Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic // 2) Collaboration in the time of competition / International Conference on Open and Distance Education, New Delhi, 19-23 November 2005, Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic, Zeynep Varoglu // 3) eLearning and free open source software: The key to global mass higher education? / International seminar on Distance, Collaborative and eLearning, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 4-5 January 2006, Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar, Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic, Susan D’Antoni // 4) Open source for open learning / IDLEL02: The Second African Conference on Digital Commons, Nairobi, Kenya, 23 February 2006, Sir John Daniel, Paul West // 5) Open and distance learning in small states: Which models? / Ministry of Education, Mauritius, 11 January 2006, Sir John Daniel // 6) Virtual university, flexible learning: Why a Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth? / Orientation and Planning Meeting for Government Representatives of Small States of the Commonwealth National Institute of Education, Singapore, 12 September 2005, Sir John Daniel // 7) Open schooling for better working / Vocational Education and Training through Open Schooling, Kovalam, Kerala, India, 8-10 February 2006, Sir John Daniel, Susan Phillips
