Information Meeting: Educational Content and Copyright in the Digital Age WIPO Headquarters, Geneva November 21, 2005. Education, Copyright and Development.” Professor Julien Hofman Commonwealth of Learning  (www.col.org) Department of Commercial Law, University of Cape Town (www.comlaw.uct.ac.za) The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) is an intergovernmental organisation  established in 1998 by Commonwealth Heads of Government to encourage  the   development   of   open   learning   and   distance   education,   through   the  fostering and sharing of knowledge, resources and technologies. COL has concentrated on improving education by making the best use of  technology.   Technology,   however,   offers   only   part   of   the   solution   to   the  world’s need for education. Another part lies in having good and affordable  educational material for the technology to deliver.  COL accepts that distance learning education must respect the legitimate  interests of copyright holders. COL is concerned, however, that some national  copyright   regimes   do   not   include   the   exceptions   and   limitations   that  international agreements allow for the educational use of copyright material.
