e-Learning: a world of experts ... ?

Just sitting here reading about the latest presentations coming up on this, that and the other about e-Learning. It suddenly occurs to me that the vast bulk of this stuff is just people who have been reading up on the subject sharing what they've found out, some huge knowledge distribution programme (not unlike most e-Learning implementation as it happens).

It's very hard in all this to find people who are actually making e-Learning work, who have pinpointed areas and ways of using ICTs to actually enhance learning. So much is just people getting excited over the very latest and greatest that technology is going to offer. Trouble is this means that those that get listened to are those who can make a good story, to sell a good line. Add enough enthusiasm and people will believe anything.

We need a lot more analysis of use and a lot less commentary I reckon.
