Over the last two decades, international support for higher education in the developing world has diminished as the focus has shifted to primary and secondary schools. The most cost-effective way for the international community to support current efforts by nations, institutions and individuals in the developing world is to create a global, distance, higher-education system. This Open Virtual Mega-University for the Developing World will not only offer degrees directly to individuals but will also aid existing institutions in their efforts to increase the quality and access to higher education worldwide. Existing open-source technology provides a means of creating such a virtual mega university, and challenges such as funding and accessibility can be overcome.
