Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a pretty key statement, I think: "Our profession will not be mandated into meeting the needs of modern learners but the power of networks and new thinking around affiliation can help diffuse the work." It is the way we work as individuals, and work with learners as individuals, that will define the new structures of learning. This isn't atomism or individualism in some sort of Ayn Rand sense; rather, it's redefining the institution from being some sort of large structure into some sort of more nimble network.
