Abstract

The launching of the Blueprint on Enculturation of Lifelong Learning Malaysia: 2011-2020 marked a significant milestone in the country’s efforts to achieve its aim of becoming a high income nation by 2020. The effective implementation of the Blueprint requires the commitment of all stakeholders. Providers of lifelong learning (LLL) must have the necessary capabilities to drive LLL and gain the confidence of the general public to engage in LLL. This paper propagates that the Open and Distance Learning (ODL) with its attendant characteristics, is the way forward in driving LLL in Malaysia. The unique features of the ODL are discussed in the context of its major processes such as: Curriculum Design; Teaching and Learning; Assessment System; Facilities and Infrastructure; Learning Materials and Learner Support Services.
