Title: The Future of Educational Media

 As learning becomes more personal, Downes argues, learning providers will change. There will be many more providers, and different types of providers, and an intra-institutional mechanism for tracking and credentials will be developed. The challenge in this new environment will be to maintain quality, to help learners make informed choices, and to meet the needs of society and industry. Downes will outline the options before us, and make recommendations for educational policy and infrastructure development.
