Megvan-e minden feltétel ahhoz, hogy az e-learning berobbanjon és egy-két /na jó, két-három/ év múlva elengedhetetlen kiegészítője, sőt esetenként alternatívája legyen a hagyományos oktatási formáknak?

Jill O'Neill, The Scholarly Kitchen, 2014/12/30
Jill O'Neill argues that Open Access advocates shouldn't casually appear to the needs of the visually impaired as an argument in favour of open access.
