Dear All,

Advisory Board member Bernard Nkuyubwatsi has written an exciting update 
for us on open education activities in Rwanda 

The Higher Education Council (HEC), a semi-autonomous institution in the 
Ministry of Education in Rwanda, intends to support the development of a 
national ODeL policy and strategy.

/"The open education initiative in Rwanda will require all stakeholders 
to learn new practices, and even learn together. However, given the 
social inclusion and transformation toward knowledge-based society 
Rwanda needs to achieve, such learning is worth undertaking. 
Transformation towards a knowledge-based economy cannot be accomplished 
with more than 90 percent of the population excluded from tertiary 
education. Enormous potential talents have already been lost. This is a 
ripe moment for Rwanda to add value to its human capital through open 
and inclusive tertiary education. /"
