Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community
This is a major paper I authored over the summer and released yesterday. In the summer of 1998, over two frantic weeks in July, I wrote an essay titled The Future of Online Learning. In this essay I offer a renewal of those predictions. I look at each of the points I addressed in 1998, and with the benefit of ten year's experience, recast and rewrite each prediction. This essay is not an attempt to vindicate the previous paper - time has done that - but to carry on in the same spirit, and to push that vision ten years deeper into the future. My best hope for most influential blog post for 2008.
