The trick is: information by itself is useless. To use it, a system/entity/person needs enough knowledge to know what it means, and enough know-how to do something with it.

I can build a thing; we build the thing together; now you can build the thing (and better). We know this is how we learn best. Why do we pretend that text is sufficient?
