What is the Future of Teaching and Online Learning?
http://mashable.com/2009/08/31/online-education-teachers/
What is the Future of Teaching and Online Learning? “On average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction,” concluded the report’s authors in their key findings."
The report looked at just under one hundred studies that compared the performance of students in online learning environments (or courses with an online study component) to those who were given strictly face-to-face instruction for the same courses.
What they found was that students who completed all or some of their coursework online tested on average in the 59th percentile, compared to the 50th percentile for those who received only classroom instruction, and that the results are statistically significant.

http://www.actapress.com/PaperInfo.aspx?PaperID=27790
Success Factors for an Efficient Blended eLearning
Blended Elearning, Online Content, Instructional design, Delivery Environment, learning management system.
This paper presents an enhanced blended elearning model and discusses the essential success factors of an efficient elearning system. The success factors in an elearning system are related to students, instructors, the developed course content and the delivery medium and environment. A new framework for the delivery of the online content is presented and mapped to the activity theory. This mapping explains and organizes the interactivity relations between instructors, students and online learning objects as they are bounded by the technology, Learning management system (LMS) and ebvironment

The Open Content Initiative (OCI)
The Open Content Initiative (OCI) will make educational resources freely available on the Internet, with state of the art learning support and collaboration tools to connect students and educators.
From The Open University (UK)
"The philosophy of open access and sharing knowledge is a wonderful fit with the founding principles of The Open University and with the University's very strong commitment to opening up educational access and widening participation. The University will be developing forms of open content e-learning which will reach less experienced learners and, we hope, encourage an appetite for further learning. The Open University will be the first in the UK to offer Open Content materials under a Creative Commons licence. We are deeply grateful to The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation for its generous support."

eLearning? Or learning with ICT?
Is ?-learning?distinctly different from traditional learning processes or is it just part of learning? Though learning happens without the ?? can e-learning happen without any of the other aspects of learning?
Moveable type did not just create book-learning, it fundamentally changed education and learning processes and the curriculum. Likewise, e-learning is the catalyst that is fundamentally changing education, learning and the curriculum today.

MIT and the OpenCourseWare Project
http://ocw.mit.edu/index.html
MIT and the OpenCourseWare team are excited to share with you a first sampling of course materials from MIT's Faculty. We invite educators around the world to draw upon the materials for their own curricula, and we encourage all learners to use the materials for self-study.
MIT OpenCourseWare reflects the commitment of the MIT faculty to advancing education by increasing access to their academic materials through the Internet and the World Wide Web. We believe that with modern communication technology we can not only transmit information but also stimulate and enhance the deeply human, person-to-person endeavor of education.
We hope the idea of openly sharing course materials will propagate throughout many institutions and create a global web of knowledge that will enhance the quality of learning and, therefore, the quality of life worldwide.
We are opening our pilot to the public for review and feedback. It contains a sample of MIT courses, offering an early look at the content and design of OCW. As we pursue our intensive work to find the most effective way to make OCW a valuable resource for all who use it, we will continue to add courses, until virtually all are available.
