Creating a Culture of Learning

Elliott Masie, E-Learning Magazine, Feb 18, 2002
Commentary by Stephen Downes

With a title that promises oh so much more than this article delivers, the answer (it seems) to disappointed online learners is to (1) show them your best razzle-dazzle, (2) give them a paper-based manual, and (3) employ blended learning. The said this is, this would work, but it would work in the way putting fins on cars work - it's comfortable, familiar and gives you the illusion that you are flying. But - importantly - you are not flying. 'Creating a culture of learning' shouldn't be about putting people back into the classroom. It should be about taking learning out of the classroom and making it a part of their everyday lives.
