Web 2.0 policy debate

Brian Kelly of UKOLN’s UK Web Focus has been named IWR’s ‘Informational Professional of the Year’. Well known in the UK and abroad for his work in highlighting the benefits of Web 2.0 – or social and interactive web technologies – he accepted his Information World Review award at the recent Online conference at Olympia in London, and in an interview for JISC, called for a wide-ranging debate on the policy issues to which the new technologies are giving rise.

While I have a lot of time for Brian - I would suggest that the problem with e-learning at the moment is that there is too much policy discussion at national and institutional level and not enough people doing it!
