Saw this on the Labour party website:

Interesting. What about:

Oscail ( DCU’s distance learning school?

What about UL’s courses in Project management that are offered over distance learning.

And above all else… what about the Open University in Ireland?

Perhaps what is needed is some funding to develop Irish universitites existing distance learning programmes?

Oh, hang on.. the speech/press release was posted on 1st April 2006. I hope I’ve been sucked in by a prank. I really do.
