The TEAL2.O project is implemented by a consortium of 11 universities from Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Italy, Norway and Romania, joined by a private company from Bulgaria.
Improving access to Science and Technology higher education is top priority in the participating Asian countries. Increasing Gross Enrollment Ratios and reaching underrepresented and disadvantaged groups requires investing serious effort into Open and Distance Learning (ODL). Yet, ODL and increased access, especially in resource-poor institutions, pose many quality-related challenges resulting from shortages of expertise, technological equipment, collaboration and internationalization. We aim to contribute to addressing these challenges and facilitate access to higher education through a comprehensive technological solution.
The TEAL2.O project will develop and deploy an open access platform for technology-enabled learning environment that will facilitate the design and delivery of quality ODL in Science & Technology higher education.
