Government announces e-learning consultation


UK Education and Skills Secretary Charles Clarke has launched a consultation document on the Government's e-learning strategy. The consultation will run until January 2004 with an e-learning strategy to be unveiled later that year.

The government says it wants everyone from primary pupils to adult learners to have access to the latest technology. But given the continuing difficulty in obtaining broadband internet services in many areas of the UK, this sounds like a classic case of putting the cart before the horse.
