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).

(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.
