Summary

The ideal concept of open education would take the form of education permanente, although no present program includes all the features implied by this concept. Up to now the literature on open learning has focused on concern for a learner oriented system. The present focus is on the open learning system itself, with the identification of 10 tentative characteristics of a learning situation that will enable open learning to occur, that will be learner-centered, that will diminish dependencies, and concern itself with learning more than it does with instruction. In order to attain these objectives the system must be capable of eliciting, interpreting, and analyzing learner goals; it should embody two separate but related programs--instructional and learning; participation should be free of traditional academic entry requirements and rewards; learning objectives and evaluation should provide the basis for decision making; the system must be cost effective; all available media should be employed; testing and evaluation should diagnose and analyze the accomplishment of specified learning objectives; independence in learning should be encouraged; the environment must be learner-oriented; and learning must return to being a natural and continuing activity.
