This is a great historical infographic about distance education produced by the Brighton School of Business and Management.  The graphic outlines the 300 year history of distance courses covering the first correspondence courses in Boston through the preference of UK students for distance courses due to the rising costs of higher education.

There is a lot of great information, including a nice shout out regarding the creation of Moodle Virtual Learning Environment in 2001 by Martin Dougiamas.  If you’re teaching instructional design, online course development or want to give your distance students a peek at the “yesterday” of distance ed. this is a great infographic to share.
