dc.description.abstractAchieving the MDGs will require a massive expansion of human learning. Traditional methods of education and training cannot address the scope and scale of the task. Technology has already revolutionised other areas of human life; the world must now harness it to learning and teaching. To maximise its impact, COL applies its expertise in ODL to tackle some of the most critical obstacles to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals. For example: * Fighting hunger and improving prosperity by engaging farmers and other rural people in livelihood-related learning. * Supporting innovative approaches to expanding teacher training, a major bottleneck to achieving primary education and gender parity. * Improving the health of mothers and children and arresting the spread of disease through the use of participatory community media. COL addresses these barriers to development by leveraging its expertise in a multiplicity of partnerships and networks.en_US
