Abstract

Recent global occurrences are significantly affecting institutions of higher education, particularly on the continent of Africa. In addition, the process of the democratization of education has inevitably led to the explosive demands by the citizens of the different African countries for open admission to institutions of higher education. Against this background this article discusses recent developments at the University of South Africa (UNISA) which have been concerned with the adoption of online distance and open learning approaches in order to achieve greater accessibility and the massification of educational products. This is especially pertinent during this era of technology-driven educational innovation, so as to make university programmes not only accessible but also relevant to the needs and aspirations of African communities.
