Twenty Years of Edtech

Martin Weller, EDUCAUSE Review, Jul 05, 2018
Commentary by Stephen Downes

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.
