  • What is the largest and most successful training and education provider in the world (and in your town)?
  • Google
  • Youtube
  • Wikipedia
  • But they don't provide training and education!
  • Well no, not yet. But they do facilitate a lot of learning that should be recognised as training and education
  • Workplace learning
  • Flexible learning
  • Informal learning
  • Just in time learning
  • Mobile learning
  • Inquiry learning
  • Constructivist learning
  • Contructionist learning
  • Distance learning
  • Open learning
  • Networked learning
  • Face to face learning
  • So Google, Youtube and Wikipedia can facilitate all kinds of learning on any conceivable topic. Is the training and education sector taking advantage of this?
  1. Free wireless Internet everywhere
  2. Change IP policy
  3. Get content on Google, Youtube and Wikipedia
  4. Engage with socially constructed media
  5. Streamline assessment
  6. Make learning free (charge for education if you must)
  7. Use Free and Open Source Software and standards
