Anders Örtenblad Posted over 1 year ago e-learning is b-learning More comments on comments 2 No, I am not (always) able to tell apart those who have studied at higher education from those who haven't. My intention by sticking to higher education in my reasoning was to keep to something I know well. I don'¨t know that much about school education (i.e. pre-university education). But I agree that such education is sometimes as academic or even more so that "higher" education. I also agree that such education should become more academic, in the sense of involving more questionning, people-development, exploring, and seeing-from-different-perspectives. I am able, though, to tell those who see education as knowledge-filling from those who see education as mutual and continuous knowledge-creation. I wish all education was more like the latter. Since I am a university teacher and researcher, I mainly want to debate the education that universities and colleges provide. Such institutions are often called "higher educational institutions". I agree that the term "higher" might seem like it is something better thn other education. This was not my intention, sorry for that. My main argument is that e-learning could be made and arranged so much better if we stop expecting that it should be time-flexible and not involve much interaction. There are so many other ways than traditional one-way lectures that we are using - at least at my university (University of Nottingham Ningbo) - that we must try to make available at online education. I refer to such teaching methods as problem-based learning, experience-based learning, service learning, learning by interviewing people, group tutorials, action learning, student-centred learning, role-plays, etc. As long as e-learning initiatives do not provide the tools for such teaching methods, there is a clear risk that initiatives like Koller's is step backwards.
