Will Thalheimer, Subscription Learning: A Fundamentally Different Form of eLearning #LSCon

Cammy Bean, The Chronicle: Wired Campus Blog, Mar 19, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm not sure I would call it 'subscription learning' but Will Thalheimer has definitely picked up on a trend when he identifies ongoing, mostly informal, non-event-based learning. Cammy Bean summarizes: " Repetitions support learning, spaced repetitions are generally more effective... You can use lots of different tools and tech to provide spaced learning: email, text, e-learning. Use delayed emails (this is easy to set up in Outlook)." I've always thought of what I am doing here with this newsletter as a form of e-learning, and I think it serves as a good example of the sort of learning Thalheimer is talking about (but without tests and quizzes).
