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. *"
