In our study we evaluated the policy of Anadolu University in reaching to the community in wider sense. We examined the relationship of time with the number of programs by using linear models for 1982-2014 period. We used some specific dummy variables in the model to express the structural changes over time. According to oursignificant model, we made predictions for the next few years. In conclusion we realized that since the establishment, Anadolu University tried to answer to the demands of society from a broader perspective by monitoring the technologic developments in the world related to open and distance education.
