Abstract
Commonwealth Ministerial Meeting on Small States, 12 November 2013, Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, Colombo, Sri Lanka, Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth (VUSSC) From Concept to Implementation: Building National Capabilities, Presented by Professor Asha Kanwar, Commonwealth of Learning, additional author: Mr. John Lesperance // The idea for VUSSC came from your ministers of education, when they met for their triennial conference in 2000 and the Commonwealth of Learning was assigned the responsibility of implementing this initiative in 2003. The ministers were concerned that their countries might not be able to benefit from thedot.com boom. But if they worked together they could develop a collective capacity for harnessing new ICT developments for increasing access to quality tertiary education in their countries.
