Does the form of collaborative learning that takes place with Web 2.0 resources now tend towards a blurring of the boundary between teachers and learners?  On the Open University H800 Technology Enhanced Learning course we have been asked to consider whether learners now have ownership of technology enhanced learning.   Does this question imply a hierarchy and suggestion of "them and us" which no longer applies?  Do learners learn as much from their peers as from staff, and do staff learn as much from students as from their peers?  Are there situations where a rigid division between the two still applies?  Discuss these and other relevant issues, and post resources relevant to the debate here.
