The path of illusion

With online collaboration and availability of (OE)resources learning will improve!

Challenges Ahead...Challenge 1: Guidance and Inclusiveness Guidance in potentially unstructured learning contextParticipation requires autonomous and self-directed learning competencesChallenge 2: Learning Goals and RecognitionInformal, non-formal learning vs. Documentation and recgnition of learning achievements(IPTS Study 2013)

Regardless of the abundance of open resources and networks available on the Internet, not everyone is able or motivated to use them. It is important for adult learners especially, who have previously been disengaged from learning, that externally set learning pathways continue to exist in the future, which will offer the support and guidance that is needed for these learners to benefit from the increasing scope and variety of learning and training opportunities.16
