COMMUNITY: Training the 'non-trainer'

Editor's note

Although we've seen a number of collapses within the e-learning
market recently, most of those who've watched the changing
fortunes of the e-learning world in the last year would still
agree that online delivery of training will remain an important
influence on training for quite some time.

With that in mind, it's interesting to hear why the so-called
Broadband revolution should still hold a key place in online
information delivery. This week, Professor Steve Molyneux,
Director of the Learning Lab and member of the Post-16 e-Learning
Strategy Taskforce makes the learning case for the necessity for
advancing broadband coverage. You can read the article now at
