Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have in the past alluded to the sceptre of Disney taking over e-learning if traditional educational institutions fail to fill the role. Now we are getting a glimpse of Disney's version (in addition to Disney eXtreme Digital) of e-learning. "The site charges users US $80 per year for access. The user interface is browser-based and resembles so-called digital editions of magazines: it is based on the Flash format and includes visual "page-turning" effects. The reader also includes educational features for children, such as click to hear words aloud, dictionaries, and trivia facts."
