The global pandemic lockdown poses new educational challenges for teaching and leaning.  Self-guided learning platforms are available.  Online weblogs and platforms like "Transition-Studies.Net" are accessible for teachers and professors at all levels as well as students of all ages.  

In addition civic groups, faith communities, NGO groups, municipal organizations, and, indeed, citizens of all backgrounds and from all countries with internet access can now use online Internet assets to launch research and construct their own means to teach others on topics of interest to themselves or their particular group.

These platforms offer the powerful possibility of "lateral learning," based on the principle of: "Each one reach one; each one teach one."
