New technologies allow a direct connection between the university and the user, by means of a
simple PC, a tablet or a smart phone: lessons, multimedia products, databases, self-assessment
systems, exams organisation and other training materials can be quickly forwarded and this
promotes collaborative learning processes inside dynamic virtual environments. In the virtual
classrooms, it is possible to reproduce teaching-learning activities as it happens in actual
classrooms, but it is also possible to significantly increase the amount of information and start
up multiple interactions in real time among individuals belonging to different cultural levels,
having different traditions and experience and coming from educational environments of
different countries of the world.
Physical distances are overcome and the communication global system allows delocalising the delivery and use of a globalised knowledge. In this context the idea itself of education and
training is changing and this requires targeted public policies. The cognitive society creates new
educational needs as well as the tools and solutions to meet them.
In order to educate and train citizens, together a new model of social ethics, it is necessary to
establish new systems, new public policies and also new organisational models for universities
at local, national and international levels. We will witness an uncontrolled process that will lead
us towards a more and more de-schooled society; it will be up to the agencies separated from
the educational institutions and software designers to create for tomorrow’s citizens the new competences that society requires.
