We describe this evolving framework before giving the example of the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth, a collaborative venture in the production and use of online courses involving 30 countries. We end by urging EADTU members to sign up to the Cape Town Declaration on open education and to contribute to the creation of an open web of course content.
