DIY is here

Harold Jarche

Over three years ago I wrote that the future of learning is DIY : With Google you can find most information that you need. YouTube is a quick and easy way to get “learning objects” to the world. This is the power of informal learning, if organisations decide to enable it. Has anything changed?
