An odd collection of Hs here, but each relevant in their own way; only the one's in BOLD directly relevant to e-learning. We 'home work' because of the Internet and learn by default how to communicate and connect. E-mial is an e-learning tool. We apply learning in wikis and other shared spaces. We work collectively on presentations, speeches and scripts.

The Horizon Reports are extraordinarily insightful. I particularly like their predictions for five years hence; these prefer to be conservative rather than over confident so the Horizon Report 2011 features where we are today, at least at the cutting edge of e-learning.

The Hewlett Foundation funds Open Learn and other organisations. Without it we may not have some of the gems that have come from the Open University.

And Tony Hirst, if you can make sense of the visualizations he does of analytics is something of a guru in online learning circles.

That's my 'H'. Do please suggest others or add to my notes. I think I ought to work this into a presentation, each one tailored to a different audience.

Dion Hincliffe is a consultant for social media and the Web in business; his infographics are legendary. 

Henry Hitchings is a pet favourite with little relevance to e-learning, but I do like how he writes about the changing nature of the English language.

While Charles Handy and Jane Henry and MBA professors; creative problem solving is a pertinent to using the internet as anything else.

Do you want link for these? All are referred to, sometimes with multiple postings, here in my OU Student Blog.
