The future of MOOCs

E-Learning Provocateur

There’s no point rehashing the same lectures when the world’s best authorities have already recorded them and offered them to the world as OERs.

There are many high quality open access journals in existence, and several that are highly recommended in the field of learning technology and distance education.

Best of eLearning Learning in September 2010. Four roles for social media in workplace learning - Clive on Learning , September 28, 2010 I write this as I travel to Birmingham to participate in a panel discussion with Nick Shackleton-Jones and Robin Hoyle on the role of social media in learning.
