The underlying mechanism, roughly, for learning is associations between related neurons (and, at a bigger scale into patterns).

What they have in common is a repeating pattern that displays at every scale. If the replication is exactly the same at every scale, it is called a self-similar pattern. Fractals also includes the idea of a detailed pattern that repeats itself. It still assumes a defined need at a level of granularity that will gain sufficient buy in to get resource allocation and with enough evidence of possible use to support that (reference here to the complex domain model ).

Clay Shirky

Who would listen to an MP3 when they could buy a better-sounding CD at the record store? The people in the music industry weren’t stupid, of course. Once you see this pattern—a new story rearranging people’s sense of the possible, with the incumbents the last to know—you see it everywhere. Higher education is now being disrupted; our MP3 is the massive open online course (or MOOC), and our Napster is Udacity, the education startup.

Is open online learning or the MOOC, the massive open online course, or informal learning in general doing the sort of thing that we need? People aren''t completing their courses. It''s the basis for instructional design. You start with what you want them to learn, design an experience, cause them to learn it, build in some checks, and see that this has all happened in the end. Of course, the publisher will provide some financial backing. It''s a pattern?recognition

Of course, as with most immediate reactions, it is wrong. He explains this via the thesis that "technology - no matter how well designed - is only a magnifier of human intent and capacity.
