The end of a National Learning Grid?

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/5145882.stm

I’d forgotten about this particular educational initiative. Notable for two reasons:

– it is always difficult to kill things off but right to do it sometimes (although suspect it was years overdue)

– I was distracted by the headline – the idea of a Warwick–style Learning Grid but on a national scale just struck me as bizarre.

My (slightly informed) guess was that it was created to sell hardware. The relationship between the government and the hardware vendors perhaps being ‘inappropriate’.

Anyhow, other people just got on with the task of making useful content, without massive funding and infrastructure.
