Où Marie-Noëlle Lamy envisage la problématique de la formation à distance en expliquant la façon dont l’Open University essaye de faire face au défi qui consiste à maintenir une entreprise rentable en assurant ses intérêts financiers tout en poursuivant un programme d’intégration sociale répondant aux véritables besoins sociaux de la population

Distance education is at an uncertain juncture: its expansion from specialised institutions to generic ones, now in harsh competition with the former, is concurrent with an unprecedented funding crisis affecting European and UK universities particularly. This article explains how the Open University is facing up to this conjuncture. A review of current strategies and future orientations aimed at achieving a balance between the university's commercial needs and its social mission is offered.
