"E-learning," writes Aaron Silvers, "as a means for making educational resources accessible to learners, is still ripe with promise. In practice, the complaints are generally around a devolution of something noble (learning) and how its been commoditized (the e-learning your people might be complaining about)." This is explained, he says, by the development of tools that standardized existing forms of learning, resulting in a Power-Point model of online learning. "We need to once again look at the mystery that is 'learning' today," he argues, linking to ADL's future learning experience project intended to explore this question.
