(14) eLearning or money?

Post 14:

In the UK all children must be educated. Most young learners (today) stay on to complete their GCSEs then proceed to study A-Level’s. With the recent reports (including previous posts on this Blog) of the rising costs of tuition fees, it makes one think “will there be as many people going to go to University?”

Of course, the Open University announced plans to rival ‘real’ Universities, they are going to charge slightly lower fees than those on UCAS. In theory, the Open University is “distant learning.” What about other forms of learning, credited courses? Take the example of an online, elearning website. This site offers potential students’ to study business alongside ICT. Has technology gone too far at giving qualifications (in the form of certificates etc) to anyone, anywhere?

Whilst the internet does not have complete control over its content, is learning a subject/area which needs to be looked after? I.e., can we keep control over how good a qualification is, or should elearning be banned completely?

Post 14, over and out.
