Hold the bus (no pun intended). No one said there were no teachers or
schools. The original issue is how you design what has traditionally
been a library into something that addresses student needs and a new
teaching and learning paradigm. Teachers are involved, for sure.
Learning packages are designed by teachers as far as I understand.
Teaching is done 'to' someone where as learning is done 'by' the
student. It's a different world, BRD.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
