To briefly recapituate Gilly Salmon’s Four ‘Worlds’:


technology as a delivery system for content
instructors as content experts
libraries, repositories, databases
institutionally centered

based on the idea of learning objects
instructors as content assemblers
context-senstitive, just-in-time learning
repository or aggregator centered

learning travels with the learner
mobile learning, alternative delivery systems
learner centered
instructors as 24-hour help desks

learning communities, communities of practice
asynchronous and synchronous communication
focus on professional development and tacit knowledge
instructors as moderators
