The emphasis on activity and social context in learning is distinct from other areas of e-learning
Fundamentally it embraces workflow technology and applies it to education
With an increasing emphasis on services in e-learning provision, Learning Design offers a service-oriented mechanism for coordinating and monitoring learners independently of any instrumentation that the learner may have access to.
This is fundamental to enabling the shift from the provision of learning opportunities from an institution-centric context (i.e. WebCT) to a learner-centric context (Personal Learning Environments)

The fluctuations of structure produced by a learning sequence creates an environment of constant challenge to the individual. The choice for the learner is always whether to adapt and survive within the learning environment, or to reject their commitment to their learning. This decision is made in the context of other communities of practice the learner belongs to.
The effectiveness of the strategy of a learning sequence is to create environmental challenge in such a way that learners choose to adapt rather than reject their learning commitment.
