Re: E-Learning 2.0

Hi Stephen,
I would like to start by commenting on how well and how informative your article on E-Learning 2.0 was.

This article has both an academic and personal connection for me. The academic, I am a teacher in an everchanging, "steriod-boosted" technological world like I have never seen before. The personal connection is that of protecting and providing for people who live in rural areas and want to learn and advance but quite often do not have the means necessary.

I consider myself to be quite up-to-date with todays technology, however the reailty is, that I am not. I try to read and intereact with as much technology as possible, but it seems that each day there is something newer, something better.

Here in Newfoundland and Labrador(my home province), we have as many people living in rural areas as we do in urban. Quite often, the students from this part of the population were not able to enjoy the courses that were being offered in the much larger urban centers and, as a result, were not able to get the same type of education.

E-Learning has helped changed this. Students are "staying with the times." There are many improvements that are still going on, but I don't think there will be any turning back now.
