E-learning initiatives that did not reach targeted goals

The third book published by the Megatrends project, E-learning initiatives that did not reach targeted goals , provides case study articles and analyses of nine prestigious European e-learning initiatives that did not reach their targeted goals.

The book shows that the conspicous initiatives spent a disturbing amount of primarily public money. About €150M was been spent, on only the ten cases analysed in this study. As tax payers, we should all be concerned about how public educational initiatives have wasted money on dubious initiatives and how hard it could be to reveal details about them.

I think the analysis of OU missed something big. I was an OU student living in the US when this venture started and tried to take classes from the US based campus. Unfortunately, the US based campus of OU didn't take its own English based courses in transfer and couldn't put together a program with what I had already taken!

Thank you very much for this information. It is in line with what the study says about the promoters of the USOU being reluctant about offering european contents to the US public.
