  1. The thing is, this is how Blackboard and other LMSs work right now. When you take a traditional online course in an LMS, at the end of the semester everything you worked on is deleted.

    This isn’t the future; it’s the present. Hopefully it will be the past eventually, where we can get away from the model of every student’s work being lost every 8 or 16 weeks and have a more open model where we continually build on past learning.

  2. It would work for a very fast-paced environment that constantly regenerated its content. It would erase the past, forcing its users to generate the future in the moment — what a way to live in the present! But would it work? I do not think we are ready for it now, but the speed with which society is evolving in terms of thought and lifestyle due to technology could feasibly lead up to such a paradigm.
