Re: Losing interest in social media: there is no there there

Remember when distance learning was a lonely enterprise that involved an envelope, a textbook and an assignment. Social media has transformed that isolating experience, and allowed ordinary part time students the experience of academic and social interaction.
Granted, social media may have allowed us to become too connected. There is certainly a lot of fluff, hype and self serving advancement out there. But there's also folk that engage, share and think out aloud, and if I was doing the part time studies thing again, I'd choose to learn via the connected route. [Comment] [Permalink]
