Conclusion - Alison A. Carr-Chellman
`This is indeed a disturbing, informative and readable book. I commend it warmly to those who may wish to find out about developments in e-learning around the world; to those who have consciences which will be disturbed by much of what is highlighted and summarised here; to those willing to re-examine their optimism about the potential and implications of e-learning; and to those similarly willing to re-consider their pessimism.
