Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community
I received an email recently that prompted me to look at my essay, The Future of Online Learning, written almost exactly eight years ago. Games, multimedia, conferencing - it's all there, as well as online communities, facilitators, even the emphasis on testing and personalization. I talk about instructional management systems, of course, but also talk about what happens when class and course based models are abandoned. How does my article compare to the three futures described here? Well, in addition to being the most detailed, I would still argue that it remains the most accurate - and I have eights years of trends now to support the contentions made in that original paper.
