"If learning is continuous, why isn't a person's relationship with the university also continuous?" This question posed by Stanford University's Open Loop project opens this discussion of learning design for lifelong learning. As an aside, the answer seems pretty evident: the four years of a student's life are also among the most expensive; nobody can continue a relationship with a university without going broke. This question is not addressed by Neil Mosley; instead "The core of my model revolves around three key aspects: levels of collaboration, design representation, and evidence and underpinning of decisions and actions." Whatever you think of Mosley's views, do spend some time with the Stanford project, which looks interesting (though it too says nothing about affordability).
