How much of eLearning should be in the public domain? What should be proprietary?
Training has a history of taking advantage of tools that were invented for other purposes. Consider the VCR. Or intranets.
If you are a large, global enterprise, you’re going to spend big bucks on a robust, scalable learning infrastructure. Even so, you’d needn’t reinvent the wheel. You’ll complement whatever you pay for with things like email, instant messaging, NetMeeting, and Java scripts.
I envision a future for shared content. If Linus Torwalds can line up an army of programmers to add functionality to the Linux kernel, why couldn’t we (you and me) enlist a core group of organizations and individuals to share learning objects?
I wrote those red words nearly two years ago. Happy to say, others have picked up the ball and are running with it very fast.

It feels like this train is finally leaving the station. Bravo!
