About Terry Anderson
Thanks for visiting the ‘Virtual Canuck’
This is my first real blog, but I have been online for over 20 years. My one (and only) Net claim to fame is that I think I organized the first ever ‘virtual conference’. This was run on UseNet, Bit Net and various listservs for the international Council on Distance Education in 1993.
Currently, I am a Professor and Canada Research Chair in Distance Education at Athabasca University – Canada’s Open University. I teach educational technology courses in the Masters of Distance Education program. I am also the director of the Canadian Institute for Distance Education Research CIDER.
My current research interests relate to social software use in distance education. You can find more about me including a long and boring CV and some of my recent published articles and presentations at my profile on the Athabasca Landing (Athabasca’s boutique social network)
