For the first seven years of its existence Oxford extension was a movement without formal machinery or organization. Indeed, the years up to 1885, when extension lecturing was effectively refounded on a different model, were years of failure. Few successful lecture courses were given, audiences were often thin and no cadre of dedicated tutors was established. Arthur Acland was appointed Secretary of the Standing Committee of the Delegates of the Local Examinations, with responsibility for university extension. Acland was drawn towards the idea of workers' education in particular. When visited by two co-operators in Oxford, he struck up a conversation with them about the result of increased education in the lower classes. Acland's growing links with the co-operative movement became known to friends in Oxford and he seemed to be a natural choice for organizing secretary of the new venture.
