E-Learning Provocateur

I advocated the development of Informal Learning Environments (ILEs). My updated premise is that an organisation – be it a corporation, university or otherwise – should facilitate two discrete but related virtual environments on behalf of its learning community: An Informal Learning Environment (ILE) which supports the learning process; and.
