    The article identifies the classical security concepts - CIA but does not explain how we move from them to other security requirements. ISO 17799 (not mentioned) makes the need for Risk Analysis obvious, but we have no discussion of the mixed pattern of risks. Students may (depending on legislation and culture) have some expectation of privacy on intermediate results, but none in the public nature of final results. The highest requirement is verifiability of the final result. More difficult to secure indeed, are learning materials. They create a fascinating dichotomy. On the one hand, educational information should be freely available, but tuition notes are sometime ''sold'' rather than ''given,'' and that is a problem. Public references are there for the greater good, but personal insight is not. It is garnered because it leads to research contracts. So students must be able to benefit from wisdom without being able to devalue it by converting their ability to access to their ability to distribute. Greater concentration on these issues would help inform in a broader sense.

    Interactivity allows you to engage the user, and this can be done without high bandwidth costly games. A simple JavaScript based quiz can achieve this, however, you should design engaging quiz questions that really challenge the learner. I''m creating an web based eLearning system, and am performing usability tests to improve learnibility. I''ve improved usability, but how would one know if learnibility was improved? The theory is that a simple and easy to use system will take the learners mind off the system and onto the course material. How would someone measure this? A set of online course and tests? Statistical data showing user performance at different stages? Yet, I would question the reliability of such data.
