Open Education, the Long Tail, and Learning 2.0

An interesting article……. some extracts……………

“The most profound impact of the Internet is its ability to support and
expand the various aspects of social learning…….

It seems likely that a great deal of informal learning is taking place both
on and off campus via the online social networks………

The emphasis is on building a community of students and scholars as
much as on providing access to educational content.

These communities are harbingers of the emergence of a new form of
technology-enhanced learning—Learning 2.0.

The demand-pull approach is based on providing students with access to
rich (sometimes virtual) learning communities built around a practice.”
