Teaching and Learning in a Net-Centric World

E-learning Entry level costs down to $0.00

Congratulations to the folks at Nuvvo a Canadian, employee owned company that has released an AJAX based, web service that allows ANYONE to create and manage their own e-learning system. And the cost is FREE (unless of course you want to charge people to take your courses) in which case the cost is $9.99 a month (but those are Canadian – not REAL dollars).

The service offers interactive (blogs, quizzes and emails) and dissemination tools to create and host a course. The program seems at first glance to not be dissimilar to Moodle or other LMS systems – except there is NO installation needed and the price is right.

The lowering of the e-learning creation and delivery entry barriers to $0 or $9.99 a month allows a whole new group of teachers and education delivery agents to enter the market -check out the list of currently available courses.

As i’ve long predicted, the era when quality elearning courses can only be produced, distributed and supported by an army of professionals is rapidly ending.
