Argenton, Gerald – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2017
This article critically explores the ways by which the Web could become a more learning-oriented medium in the age of, but also in spite of, the newly bred algorithmic cultures.

Sampson, Peter – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2013
Neoliberalism has become the dominant ideology of our day. As with all ideologies, it influences without drawing attention to itself.

Bajrektarevic, Anis – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2012
Misled by a quick triumphalism of the social media, the international news agencies have confused the two: revolt and revolution. The past episodes of unrest started as a social, not a political, public revolt. Through the pain of sobriety, the protesters are learning that neither globalisation nor the McFB way of life is a shortcut to…

Kervin, Lisa; Jones, Sandra C.; Mantei, Jessica – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2012
It is recognised that from a young age children spend considerable portions of their leisure time on the Internet.

Roberts, Peter; Peters, Michael A. – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2011
This article explores different forms of openness and closure in two knowledge communities: the fictional world of Castalia in Hermann Hesse's great work "The Glass Bead Game", and the twenty-first-century cyberspatial universe of Wikipedia. These two worlds differ in some important respects, but they also share a number of educationally…

Based on their experiences as…
