Learning Networks: A Proven Approach for Delivering Massively Scalable Blended Learning Solutions.
Harris, John; Cundall, Peter
Learning networks are a proven way to deliver massively scalable blended learning solutions that have been successfully implemented in a variety of commercial situations. For learning challenges that involve educating hundreds of thousands of distributed learners across thousands of organizations, learning networks can enable the delivery of up-to-the-minute learning content in a blended learning environment for a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. While the challenges of large-scale learning vary depending on the context and subject matter, a variety of common best practices from various implementations of learning networks can be applied to many situations. Any organization seeking a cost effective, scalable, geographically dispersed blended learning solution should consider the learning network approach. (Author)
