Knowledge, Learning, Community
A look at some of the more optimistic (and incorrect) predictions about e-learning (for example: "the physical presence of universities would cease to exist within 10 years") balanced with observations about the real potential the technology offers (for example: "One example of the possibilities that eLearning can provide is the Professeurs pour la liberté. This Canadian-led collaborative initiative aims to provide free online education to Africans by having one course donated from academic institutions from the G8, European and Scandinavian countries, along with re-useable computers, books and volunteers").
