As part of its thrust to make learning more accessible to the larger community, the UP Open University launched in 2010 the UPOU Networks — an online network or station producing, programming and delivering scholarly productions through the Web using a content management system programmed with various applications. It produces research-based scholarly materials in various formats—print, hypertext, multimedia, and rich media—for use in regular course offerings, special courses, and programs for the general public. Materials include open educational resources or freeware available to the general public, and productions designed for the exclusive use of specific client groups.
