Finally, What can we do? ‘ thin air’

  • e-learning is a new culture of learning

  • Resistance to e-learning is not because of the product, but simply because human nature is reluctant to innovate and change.

  • It is expected that bureaucratic ministries of education and governments will gradually accredit and recognize e-learning or otherwise they become obsolete

  • It is us who can implant the technology – enabled education among our students

  • It is us who can change the rules and implant the culture of e-learning
