Summary of a debate on e-learning, where most of the negative arguments seemed to be that crappy “click next” e-learning is ineffective but the positive arguments didn’t seem much more compelling. Some good quotes though.

You’ve gotta decide. This point is key: decision-making isn’t rote performance, which means it’s not based solely on facts.
