I've been following the series of articles of the same name on Martin Weller's blog. 20 years ago, it was 1998, I wrote the Future of Online Learning, and we were looking forward to LMSs and learning objects. A lot has changed since then (but a lot has rolled out exactly as we expected to, proving to to a large degree you can predict the future). While I would order and date them a bit differently, I played a role in each of the technologies described in the 20 parts of this article, and it is with no small sense of accomplishment that I look at what we as a community has done over that time. We have indeed transformed education.
