To communicate and implement within a task of change from traditional education settings to E-setting is paramount to make teaching and learning two effective endeavors. Educators must be willing to be flexible for successful teaching and learning to happen. The E-learning medium provides a balance between a teacher-centered and a learner-centered teaching and learning environment and this is where Sabieh believes lies the power. The spirit of the age is the creation of equal partners, based on operationalized definitions, who take on the responsibility to take learning beyond the barriers - the boundaries, allowing for learning assessment to be more qualitative than quantitative. The purpose of the address is to re-frame the roles and the definitions needed to create an effective E-education setting. It is concluded that change – the spirit of the new age -- can happen given the E-medium of ongoing learning possibility, but Sabieh warns that it is of utmost importance to ensure proper course creation, development & maintenance throughout the process.
