Development of Distance and E-Learning Based Higher Education in Uzbekistan in Framework of International Collaboration

Today international collaboration and cooperation are being considered as one of the main trends of higher education development all over the world. Knowledge has become increasingly international. For example, the total number of foreign students worldwide was approximately 200,000 in the 1950- 1960 years. This figure changed in 1987 up to 1.2 million partially thanks to establishing international mobility programs such as European Comission funded ERASMUS MUNDUS. In 2004 this number reached 2.5 million (UNESCO Institute for Statistics, 2006).
