As a teaching tool, I think digital media has its place as a means for communicating fundamentals of any subject. However, when it comes to integrating knowledge with experience and real-life application, it cannot substitute for interaction with a teacher and pooling the aggregate experience of a class of students.

I find myself in agreement with the previous comment. Digital media have an important - indeed increasingly important part to play, but students still seem to value f2f teaching highly for what it can offer that elearning can't.

Just like watching a video in class, not all students are going to be engaged without a teacher developing good resources and generating discussion around it. Imagine a class watching videos everyday, they would all pretty soon lose interest.
Digital media is the same. It requires good teachers to motivate students to use it and learn in a productive way.

I'm interested to see that the first couple of projects offer an either/or model. I am keen to see digital media used to enhance the student experience, and used appropriately (which doesn't necessarily mean risk free)... within a sharing environment.
