The E-learning Revolution

The E-learning Revolution
Giving people the ability to author their own e-learning courses is a big first step in education. This post by TechCrunch profiles Nuvvo, a new company in this space that provide on-demand e-learning tools.

Perhaps even more interesting are the comments, which outline several (free) alternatives.

Of course, as long-time readers know, e-learning isn't a panacea. If e-learning courses are simply the same old stuff, just online, we're not tapping into its true power.

Once anyone can create a course, expect creativity and variation to flourish...by moving learning from a near monopoly with high barriers to entry to something anyone can design, I think we'll start seeing innovative new models for education.

And that's exciting.
