  27. Finally, What can we do? • e-learning is a new culture of learning • Resistance to e-learning is not because of the product, but simply because human nature is reluctant to innovate and change. • It is expected that bureaucratic ministries of education and governments will gradually accredit and recognize e-learning or otherwise they become obsolete • It is us who can implant the technology – enabled education among our students • It is us who can change the rules and implant the culture of e-learning
