The Open Global Education Network - Revisited Of course there is some way to go and an integrated network that matches individual learners with the best content, expert tuition and connections with others remains in the future.

Epstein once said that just because a work of art is deemed avant-garde doesn’t mean it’s inherently good, by which he meant that all the artistic cleverness in the world -- let alone formal purity -- could not "express. . . the great primal facts of man and woman." For both the primacy of art could not be separated from the primacy of the all-too-human: the creative task was to integrate them.
