Life long learning also allows for a better informed public, social interaction between communities, and studies suggest that it can also reduce the risk of dementia.

Funding to the Open University, and other distance learning courses will be increased to allow for greater uptake and a wider range of courses. Funding will also be targeted not only at degree level qualifications, but also at a cheaper level of continual improvement qualifications.

Both I (to vote on this), and this policy, need clarification.

Thanks for the proposal @SimonVery!

It looks like "design" should perhaps be "designed" - is that right? We can get that changed easily enough if so.

Could you elaborate on what "peer/community assessed collaborative project based" is in practice? Does this refer to the work that students would do as part of the course? Or does it perhaps refer to how the course itself is designed?

Thanks!
