Professional, Continuing and Online Learning Update

NOTE: this is Ray Schroeder who for the past 20 some years has published the Online Learning Update from the University of Illinois Springfield (currently ranked at #12). After 44 years at UIS, I am phasing out my appointment and consolidating my blogs. I will suspend the Online Learning Update on July 15 and refer readers/subscribers to the UPCEA Professional, Continuing and Online Education blog; I will publish the same content to a larger audience at this blog. (end NOTE) The UPCEA Professional, Continuing and Online Education provides a daily chronicle of the development of the technology, pedagogy and practice of professional, continuing and online higher education. It is an continuation of the Online Learning Update blog published for more than 20 years by Professor Emeritus Ray Schroeder. Now a Senior Fellow at the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA), Ray will continue the same curated reading publications at this site.
