It has been a most interesting journey from the earliest days of online learning to today. As we have discussed in earlier weeks, we are now poised at a moment of significant change - changes in technology, economics, societal needs, etc. are converging today. How will these changes play out in the near future? How will they play out in a decade. Ubiquity, diversity, and virtuality all are characteristics that may be applied to online learning in the coming decade. Ray Schroeder returns to lead us through this look ahead in online learning.
