The persistence of distance (learning)

Learning with 'e's

In a formal sense, distance learning has been a familiar concept since at least 1837, when Sir Isaac Pitman began teaching his shorthand system using typed instruction cards mailed through the universal Penny Postal service to his students across England. Some would say formal distance education was established much earlier in the Americas. Earlier still, were the cave paintings of early man a primitive form of distance education?

What if they threw a party and none of us came?

Learning with e's

Before anyone points out the fact that paper based journal cost money to produce, edit, review, print and distribute, I want to make the following points: Most academic journals are run by academics on a voluntary basis - those who review for my journal don't get paid a penny. They receive a free subscription to the journal, (and of course the kudos of working on a journal run by me - priceless!) The real costs come in the production of the paper version.
