As a result of the e-learning hype over the last years, academic and private institutions invested man power, time, and money to change the way of education by re-designing learning material and the organization of lectures. We claim that the ultimate promise in defining and establishing a new form of education did not fulfill. Nevertheless, many valuable tools, were developed, implemented, and integrated in the curriculum. Furthermore, learning objects were written and stored in individual formats and databases producing many e-content islands worldwide. In this paper, we deliberately sketch a vision rather than describing a concrete concept. We demonstrate existing barriers that limit our efforts to find, retrieve, use, and provide learning material on the Internet and describe a visionary way of overcoming these barriers and hopefully define a possible starter for another run on transforming the education to a world-wide-network where everybody can be educated from everywhere.
