Knowledge, Learning, Community

I had a wide-ranging discussion earlier this week with Jenni about open educational resources, what an e-learning application would look like and where e-learning is going in general. This post summarizes her thoughts after the conversation, and I think it reflects the tenor of our discussion quite well. And it captures especially well the flavour of our conversation (or at least, my thinking about our conversation): "You are the only one responsible to know yourself when it comes to learning. Know your skills, your strengths, your weaknesses about a new thing you are trying to learn... Don't wait for someone to spoon feed you, your parents to pay for it, a bank to loan you the money, or your employer to train you on what they need you to know."
