Three Decades of Distance Learning: Enrichment at the University of Hawai'i
Southworth, John H.; Knezek, Gerald; Flanigan, John
Educational Perspectives, v35 n2 p3-8 Spr 2003
This article was composed collaboratively using Nicenet, a computer electronic bulletin board. The three co-authors collaboratively edited the file and exchanged drafts via e-mail while simultaneously gathering reflections from colleagues online. Their collaboration on authoring this article in some sense closes the circle of similar activities pioneered by the three of them almost thirty years ago. But their aim is not merely to demonstrate innovative writing techniques, it is also to offer a personal history of online learning. They aim to give a personal account of some of the interesting events that have taken place in computer telecommunications over the past three decades. In addition, they'll show how this technology has become more available and therefore more effective as and educational tool.
