    16. 16. Why OER?• Do we really have an alternative? – Sir John Daniels, former President of the Commonwealth of Learning 2012: – “First, UNESCO’s 2009 World Conference on Higher Education identified rapidly increasing demand as the major trend because nearly one-third of the world’s population (29.3%) is under the age of 15. – Today there are 165 million people enrolled in tertiary education. Projections suggest that that participation will peak at 263 million in 2025. Accommodating the additional 98 million students would require more than four major campus universities (30,000 students) to open every week for the next fifteen years. This suggests that alternative models of provision will be needed.” Source: http://www.col.org/resources/speeches/2012presentations/Pages/2012-04-12.aspx with the support of the Lifelong Learningopencourseware.eu Programme of the European Union 16
