No one mentioned e-learning which was part of the reference, specifically related to retention. Nope, in all the counter-arguments it was focusing on one item, learning styles, which initially was going to make up only a small part of the post. Quality e-learning is interactive and engaging.

This was back in 99-2000, when I led a project developing an intelligently adaptive learning system (Intellectricity ™; inspired by Joe Miller ’s vision of a system that respected who you were as a learner).
