Knowledge, Learning, Community
The problem, in my mind, is not that learning resources are not being developed, but rather, that so many of the resources that are developed are not being used in learning. For just about any subject you care to name, the internet is overflowing with learning re4sources. Long videos, short videos, academic papers, how-to guides, opinion pages, blog posts, discussions and groups and clubs and everything else under the sun. When people like Tony bates say, "there is still so little of it. What I would like to see are many thousands of short modules," he must mean resources specifically designed to be used in classes. But that's not how the internet rolls. Nothing is designed for a specific purpose. People throw stuff out there, and then it's up to everyone else to make what they will of it.
