These new learning systems also allow learning to be personalised to your needs in terms of both content (what you learn) and method (how and when you learn it). Your education can be delivered when you want to access it, using whatever channel you choose: your PC, TV or even your mobile phone.
All of this is critical to lifelong learning, which is as essential to individuals' employment prospects as it is to the European economy as a whole. This 'repackaging' of educational content also creates economies of scales, creating new markets for the education and training industry.
This inevitably changes the way we design training and learning. Educationalists need to take into account new modes of learning and educational authorities need to provide the necessary support to those using new media in educational settings.
