About us

Upou.org is a free initiative for the promotion of open universities and distance learning and is supported by a worldwide community of scientists. We are convinced that the concept of training through a correspondence course and the possibilities of online learning can make a major contribution to education. In this case a factor of education is a fundamental importance in the world to deal with crises.

Therefore, we want to inform on these pages about distance learning and create a framework in which all the world’s open universities are presented.

The website of upou.org is currently implemented in several steps:

  1. Extension of the presentation of open universities worldwide
  2. News about distance learning
