Abstract

Close observation of the world's development and progression during the last few decades,reveals to us drastic changes in all domains including educational fields. No longer is education bounded to certain privileged groups or loci, as it was in earlier times. It is now available at our doorsteps and its rigidity has changed due to increasing flexibility. Globalization has empowered people towards lifelong learning. Hence, lifelong education together with formal and informal learning (blended learning) helps to improve standard of living. This paper seeks to investigate the need for such an education, the obstacles to it, and its implementation at world level. We hope it could shed light on the related issues and help overcome the hindering factors.
