Tony Bates reminds us that the world of elearning is larger than most of us can comprehend. "Who do you think is the largest supplier of free online learning? MIT? Stanford? Carnegie Mellon’s Open Learn Initiative? iTunesU? The UK’s OpenLearn? The Khan Academy? The University of the People? Well, what about ALISON? Who, you may ask, is ALISON? ALISON.com is 'the world’s leading free online learning resource for basic and essential workplace skills. ALISON provides …. interactive multimedia courseware for certification and standards-based learning.'" ALISON may be free, but it's not open - materials are not available for downloading, and the site demands a registration before course content can be viewed.
