This presentation will draw on material from the presenter's book, Online Education Policy and Practice: The Past, Present, and Future of the Digital University (Taylor & Francis/Routledge, 2017). It will provide an analysis of the waves or phases of online education over the past twenty years, including the major developments of fully online courses and programs, blended learning, and the rise and fall of the MOOC phenomenon.

Looking toward the future, the presenter will speculate on the future, dividing this timeframe into a near future and a more distant future, being both optimistic and cautious in his speculations about the digital university. Policymakers, administrators, college faculty, instructional designers, government, and private funders interested in higher education will find a complete treatment of the topic of online education in this presentation.
