I have had an email invite to a survey on e-learning, or rather whether the term "e-learning" should vanish and just be known as "learning". Strangely there is also another term "technology-enhanced learning". This seems to have been recently invented by academics looking for another discipline. Hey, this is just a blog don't take offence. I have sent a reply and suggested "the web" as a term that is in use. It seems obvious to me that some form of learning is involved in using the web. One problem is that "education" is associated with institutions. In the UK there has recently been less emphasis on adult education other than basic skills or through employment sectors. So I think the web should be part of the mix.
