In this era of budget crunches I am afraid that some school districts will use e-learning as a substitute for hands-on learning. In my district they are already toying with idea. By doing so (on a high school level) one teacher can be responsible for any number of students at multiple sites. To me this is using technology as a substitute for actual exploration instead of using technology to enhance a class with a teacher in person. This is also different than distance learning where one class can visit multiple classes or visit exhibitions electronically. e-learning for the visual arts has some worrisome consequences.
