Learning in the 21st century has been undergoing both subtle and radical transformation as a result of the impact of digital, networked technologies. Under these conditions, open learning can support learners across the globe by providing unprecedented access to information and education. However, it is not the technologies themselves that represent the most significant changes, but rather the opportunities for openness that flow from their thoughtful application through the availability of and access to formal and informal learning. Yet without supporting research to drive the direction of these opportunities, issues related to exclusion and fair access may negatively impact such educational changes.
