Inter-campus, international cooperation online is the future of learning. I begin by showing the importance of online and blended learning. Then, I present three best practices: online collaboration between University of Illinois and Warsaw School of Economics, that started in 2006; Polish Consortium (Econet) of top economic academies, offering one certificate, based on five courses, offered by those five institutions; finally, an international project in computers and philosophy, coordinated by professors from Sweden, USA, Italy, and Greece, aimed at setting up the standards in this new and growing field. I also sketch out an idea of a worldwide academy, and what such a global program may look like.
