Economist Intelligence Unit Releases Global e-Learning Rankings

IBM, Jan 27, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have no idea why a company would issue a press release describing a new report without providing a link to the report, but that's what IBM does with this item. The IBM elearning site has a number of iteresting papers (no RSS feed for them though), but not this one. Anyhow: "According to the white paper, successful e-learning countries -- such as Sweden, Canada and the United States -- lead in broadband connectivity, mobile-phone usage, and PC penetration. These countries have a strong education system, traditions in job training, support for lifelong learning and a high rate of literacy. Successful e-learners have access to content -- library materials, newspapers, corporate information, government databases, and much more, online and in their native language. The final building block for success is the right culture."
