Abstract
I shall set the scene for this address before evoking some trends in higher education outside India and extracting some general principles from them. You know far more about the higher education scene in India than I do. It is far too complicated for anyone outside the country to follow properly unless they devote themselves to it full time – and even then you have to be located here to disentangle declarations of intent from the day-to-day reality.// This will lead me to argue for the importance of technology in meeting the challenges of contemporary higher education. Then I shall look at some of COL’s work in the area of skills development with groups that are not normally thought of as the clientele for higher education. This may resonate with YCMOU’s work.// Finally, I shall talk about Open Educational Resources and how they could change education.
