But, as Sarah Lacy reminds us today in TechCrunch, Silicon Valley will probably not realize the promise of e-learning. Rather, it will be investors and entrepreneurs in Brazil, India, South Africa and other emerging markets. Why will they get the job done? Because their educational systems haven’t fully matured. They’re still a work-in-progress. And this creates an environment much more favorable to innovation. You can get the rest of her thinking here.

Until we start seeing jobs in this sector the education will come later. I’ve seen this too often where people get all excited to get into a new industry only to learn the industry is too new.

I personally think that E-learning is truly the future. Lets hope this industry grows and establishes itself.
