The purpose of KNOU FORUM 2012 is to seek plans for mutual cooperation and development by sharing educational experience open universities have employed to implement knowledge network society.

The ongoing development of new media including smart devices has expanded horizons for distance education. In particular, 'the sharing, openness and participation of knowledge' which is emphasized in the Web 2.0 era is tapping the potential for building and developing knowledge network society.

KNOU FORUM 2012 will offer in-depth discussions on what role open universities at home and abroad should play in order to bring knowledge network society as close to reality and what efforts are needed for the future.
