The paper offers a model showing the relationships existing between the lifelong learning agenda, the knowledge economy and marginalised communities. Experiences reported from the Asia Pacific region will be addressed. The paper identifies different kinds of marginalisation and demonstrates how e-education can be used to enhance access to learning. The model also indicates that social, political, financial and pedagogical issues need to be considered when developing incentives to engage in e-education for lifelong learning.
