Mark Harrison, partner at UK consulting firm Kineo, feels that by 2012 we may not be using the terms 'e-learning' or even 'informal learning'. Jay Cross (credited with coining these terms, and author of a soon to be released book on informal learning) might cringle a little at that thought.
I agree with Mark about not using terms for routine and commonplace activities (learning, like brushing your teeth is something you hopefully do everyday, in some form or the other). But then again, sometimes using a term is required to focus attention and resources on a sphere of activity.
