Commentary by Stephen Downes

I guess the concept of the personal learning environment "began crossing the chasm into the mainstream" of the corporate e-learning community last week. there may be a land rush shortly, but for now the discussion has mostly been of the head-scratching and visioning variety. Citing some workshops with Harold Jarche and Judy Brown last year, Jay Cross suggests that the best starting point was what we were calling Personal Knowledge Management. meanwhile, Tony karrer responds to my concern that the corporate world is more interested in command and control. "There's some truth to that," he says, but we can agree that "we each needed to become better learners." Tony O'Dricscoll also comments.

Meanwhile, Scott Wilson (for some reason crediting George Siemens, though the same thing has been said repeatedly over the last 12 months) notes that the PLE is a concept, not an application (take a bow, Graham Attwell). Alan levine also hits that theme in a post Saturday. Total: 129
