Re: The Cost of Learning

Perhaps rather belatedly, that's the conclusion I came too also - ironically, commercial pressures make the need for free content stronger because creating content is too time consuming, costly and ultimately wasteful (there may be some universities who trade on killer content, but not many). It is the wrap-around that is important. This has been a trend since elearning first became a term (remember the David Noble arguments which basically equated education to content), I guess we are just seeing it continue on its path.
