A couple questions came to mind as I read through the comparison chart.
- If learning is distributed within a network, how do you centralize understanding? In other words, each participant only holds a piece of the complete puzzle.
- Are the tools that help put those pieces together the new tools of learning?
- Shouldn't motivation be included as an influencing factor? My personal experience with online learning communities is that levels of contribution vary greatly. Learning therefore depends on individual participants' motivation to support and contribute to the group.
