All learning depends on knowledge. It is odd therefore that people who write about e-learning rarely worry about the knowledge bases that must underlie any serious e-learning system. Schools have always had libraries and textbooks, not that they are used all that much. But the idea that there should be a knowledge base available to be consulted to help one better understand something is a key educational idea.

    The openning statement as a cach phrase is very disturbing and overlooks other learning theories.

    To my librarian''s ear, this sounds remarkably like a library. Stories, organized and indexed--a library.

    This moves info sharing into the oldest form of teaching. How would "keeper of the stories" --experts--be designated?
